ATA is joining the ranks of AA, UA, US, CO, and NW in reducing its scheduled service. Mostly it is to destinations just not drumming in enough revenue such as PIE, PHL, EWR, DEN and FLL. Only one flight per day will be cut from those cities.
The L10s are now going to be moved solely to military charter, despite previous statements that ATA would work to utilize these planes more often.
That now means that ATA's scheduled service fleet will be one of the youngest in the nation, with an average age of less than 2 years (all Boeing 738/752/753s.)
Now it is just a matter of waiting on the ATSB's approval of a $168M cash infusion loan which would help ATA stabalise itself in the current economy.
