America West And ATA's Aircraft Questions?

Wed Nov 24, 2004 12:54 am

Rumors continue about HP taking on ATA's routes and aircraft for a buy-out/merger deal. My question is, what would happen to ATA's 737-800s etc? HP already operates the 757 so ATA's 57s would fit nicely, the 737-800s though are all brand new. Would HP take them on as well?

My understanding is that all HP is intersted in is the gates at MDW and the 757's. I doubt we will end up with anything, I dont think we are in a position to outbid the tohers in the running.

I've heard Continental has been showing interest in thr 738s. HP's main interests are the 757s (especially the -200s), ATA's ETOPS program, a presence at MDW and a few routes including Hawaii and the Carribean.
