Alaska could be suspended from doing it's own maint. work.

Any speculations on who might take over the maintenance for AS? 3rd party or another airline? Hmm, if say, CO took over the maintenance for Alaska then it might be a foothold for another merger.

While other carriers are certainly an option I would think a fare more cost effective measure would be outsourcing to a third party like Dee Howard or Tramco.

Airlines often do not have excess capacity to handle off line maint. Some carriers are short of overall maint without any additional, HP, US, and DL come to mind. Others are very expensive and have some capacity but not enough to immediately absorb an additional 87 if AS or 150+ if AS and Horizon aircraft. These would be CO TW AA and NW. If they were smart they would spread the maint. work around based on location and fleet type.

According to an article on the Reuters wire service. The FAA would not allow AS to farm out maint if it failed a 30 day re-evaluation but would force the airline to park or remove from service aircraft as maint items came due or heavy maint was required. This would force an effective shutdown of the carrier.

No word if this applies to only AS or to Horizon as well.

This has been a bad year for AS. I hope they can pull out of this turmoil and continue to prosper and serve the flying public.
