A federal judge today sharply criticized efforts to license Aloha Airlines' brand name to the carrier's nemesis, Mesa Air Group Inc., saying the deal is insensitive to former Aloha workers.
U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Lloyd King postponed until at least Feb. 19 any decision on the sale of Aloha's intellectual property to Aloha's former majority owner Yucaipa Cos.
King said that "Mesa and go! have been given credit for the demise of Aloha" and that licensing the brand name to Mesa would takes the "Aloha name and stand it on its head."
"How about all of the people whose lives have been devastated by this," King asked lawyers for Yucaipa. "Is it just about money?" Aloha shut down for business in March and terminated 1,900 workers, in the state's largest ever mass layoff.
