Aloha Airlines Says Goodbye
STEVE INSKEEP, host:
NPR's business news starts with an aloha to Aloha Airlines.
And with this aloha, we mean goodbye, or flight canceled. Aloha Airlines is calling it quits. The Hawaiian carrier shuts down service tomorrow, blaming what it calls unfair competition. The airline has been operating for 61 years, but in the last couple of years it's been in a brutal price war with a new low-cost airline and recently filed for bankruptcy protection.
