Has anybody heard of when, or if, the Mexican airline TAESA will begin flying again?

For those not in the know, TAESA was grounded this past Nov. for gross safety violations after the crash of one of its DC-9s near MEX. I understand that "gross safety violations" is probably an understatement, as stories have emerged in the press about seats with no seatbelts, doors that dont close, and flight attendants having to sit in the lavatories during take off and landing because flights were so oversold.

I've heard it all,

I cant belive that they would go that low. Well, since you already know my opinion on them, I am sure that you can tell that I don't like them.

Anyway, I heard on the t.v. news that if they are able to raise $150 million to secure that they will be able to pay for maintenance for the aircraft, they will be able to resume service on Jan 15. The report also said that at the time of the accident the airline had 30 million in it's coffers & that it was expected to loose around 10-13 million while it was shut down. That leaves it with hardly any cash in hand.

I don't know wether they can actually raise that sum. Because, if they don't they're out of business for good.
