How Is Legend Doing?

Thu Jan 18, 2001 6:06 am

I was wondering if Legend Airlines started service again to LGA and IAD? Also, how many aircraft are currently in their fleet?

Although they have a commitment for $20.0M in Debtor in Possession financing, and have been using $1.0M of it to gear back up for renewed operations; and have received approval from the Bankruptcy Court for use of the remaining $19.0M; the money (which was supposed to be available immediately) is not "in the bank" yet; it is (according to the lawyer for the lenders) expected by "Friday or Monday."

Not auspicious.

But they claim the deal remains in place, and recalled a number of employees weeks ago to get ready to resume flights.

They are also operating some charter work.
