US Airways Status

Sat Dec 14, 2002 11:27 pm

Hows everything going with the US Airways bankruptcy? I`ve heard some people talk about Ch.7. I`m hoping my favorite airline will be around a long time.

I read in a local newspaper that Retirement Systems of Alabama is most likely going to pull out of $200 million loan unless US reorganizes union deals. RSA has already given $3 million to US. Another reason they are probably going to pull out of it is that RSA lost around $500 million in the worldcom scandal. Although they only lost less the 1% of there portfolio in worldcom they still think right now it is to risky to go in with US airways unless things are reorganized.

Hopefully they won't pull out, cause if they do, USAirways is most likely doomed.

I was told today that the IAM and AFA rejected the request for further cuts. Has anyone else heard that? I cannot verify the accuracy of that statement, it may have been old news. Thanks in advance.TC

I know that the pilots had ratified thier end, and Retirement Systems said they were pleased with the move and that USAir would continue to fly.

AFA and IAM deals are requring management to take further cuts before they will proceed. However, the Pilots did ratify $100 million in further cuts...of the $200 million needed total (of all unions). So half way there.
