"Although none of us wanted to navigate the bankruptcy process during our career, we are pleased that this difficult chapter is now behind us and we can focus on moving forward, exiting bankruptcy, re-fleeting, and pursuing paths to grow our company and ensure that we sustain solid piloting jobs well into the future," said ALPA master executive council chairman Tony Gutierrez.
