Pinnacle Airlines Files for Chapter 11 Bankruptcy Reorganization
Pinnacle Airlines Corporation — which operates as Delta Connection, United Express and US Airways Express flights — voluntarily filed for Chapter 11 reorganization under the United States Bankruptcy Code in order to reset their “financial and operational structure in order to position Pinnacle for viability over the long term.”
Passengers of Delta Connection, United Express and US Airways Express flights should not notice any difference in normal daily operations as a result, although some of the aircraft fleet will be taken out of service later this year.
