And now ATA Flies into the Ground

And... now ATA has declared bankruptcy eliminating more capacity to Hawaii. ATA was kind of a bottom feeder carrier anyway, but this did come out of the blue sky and crashed into Oakland airport where ATA just quit w/ no advanced notice (unlike Aloha that was at least nice about it).  With the loss of nearly 10% of mainland to Hawaii capacity and the fact that Untied and American fly with nearly full planes, fares to Hawaii doubled last night!  Yes doubled.  I would expect them to drop as the big guys add capacity and figure out how to rebalance their flights.  I would also guess they would get a bit of pressure from the Governor of Hawaii as they are very dependent on tourists from the mainland.
