Mesaba files for bankruptcy protection


Mesaba has announced that it is filing for reorganization under Chapter 11 of the U.S. Bankruptcy Code. Mesaba’s entire fleet flies under the Northwest Airlink brand. Northwest, which itself filed for bankruptcy in mid-September, has missed several payments to Mesaba, and has indicated it will drastically reduce its future flying. The cutbacks will likely include Mesaba’s entire fleet of 35 Avro RJ85s.
