NEWS: ATA Pilots to the Airline: Find Another Way

ATA's pilot union voted to not accept the latest $6 million cost cutting contract proposal from the airline. Seems they don't think much of the management at ATA and they have said as much to the press. Apparently they are calling ATA's bluff at the $43 million they have already given back. While this may not be the straw that breaks the camels back I have to think that ATA may run out of momentum (and operating funds) a little quicker than some of the other troubled airlines. This can't be helping.
