Midway Back In Court To Work Out Agreement With Pilots

Posted December 5, 2001 8:11 a.m. EST

— Midway Airlines was back in bankruptcy court Wednesday to work out an agreement with its pilots.

An agreement was reached between the pilots' union and the company, which will help put five 737 jetliners in the air, hopefully by Dec. 19.

Midway plans to serve Boston, Newark, New York City, Tampa, Orlando and Ft. Lauderdale.

"We expect to do that with a fare structure, which we think will be very, very attractive to the community and quite inconsistent with the one that currently prevails," said Robert Ferguson, dhief executive officer of Midway Airlines.

The airline has reached an agreement with the ramp workers' union, as well. It has no collective bargaining agreement with flight attendents.
