Didn't hear about this until now. Kind of surprising considering that the freight carriers seem to be the ones making the money these days. Thank you for the information.

Certainly a surprise. I never figured GR to be an airline in need of a Chapter 11 restructuring. I wish them the best and hope they don't go under.

Prepackaged bankruptcy -- they hope to be in and out quickly, with no disruptions whatsoever. Of course, that's what everyone hopes and it doesn't always work that way. We'll see.

The lack of news or hints from Gemini is a result of the company being privately held and not being required to file public SEC documents.

I know Gemini has lost a significant amount of flying it used to do from Miami formerly having several DC-10s based there. In addition funnily enough I did see some required DOT reports last year and remember thinking Gemini pays quite a premium for its MD-11 leases which predate 9/11, compared to others in the industry.
