@canucklad – there was a reason the credit card monies were held back. The company’s insurance had been cancelled, however passengers were returning after holidays and suing the airline (such as those stranded in NY for 6 days and forced to make their own way home when the plane went tech and the airline couldn’t afford to fix it).
Those cases were taking weeks or months to come to court and the credit card companies were still on the hook.
I’m sure I didn’t help but the airline was a basket case long before that.
@bcalboy – CEO not up to the fight? Presumably translated that means has a successful business model that they don’t want to risk…..
