Re: Ravn Alaska closing its doors?

I doubt they are closing doors. They are much needed right now to transport supplies. I'm sure they are also getting a few charters during this time for medical.

I sure hope they aren't closing. Penn Air on the other hand, that poor airline might be on the verge.
