|Quoting AADC10 (Reply 3):|
Any airline that goes through Ch. 11 is usually forced by the bankruptcy court to suspend all but the most critical capital expenditures. Non-safety related maintenance is deferred. That is the big disadvantage of bankruptcy. Management loses control over the company and hands a good portion of decision making to the creditors and bankruptcy judge.
Even after the airline exits Ch. 11 there is a limited budget to catch up with the deferred maintenance. It often takes several years before things get fixed and sometimes they never get fixed.
