NEWS: ATA Airlines Cut Back

ATA Airlines announced that it will cut 267 positions in Indianapolis (133 ticket agents, 19 mechanics and 115 ramp agents). These things tend to happen when an airline rolls back operations from more than 40 daily flights to four. This is exactly what ATA intends to do on April 11.

So what was John Denison's first day as ATA's CEO like. Congratulations Mr. Denison...can you please sign these pink slips? OK, maybe it didn't work out exactly like that but it still seems like a tough first day.
