Another airline company...this time Aloha Airlines has filed for bankruptcy protection.
The company filed for Chapter eleven after announcing it would lay off a dozen top managers and freeze thirty-five open management jobs because of rising fuel costs.
Aloha--which offers flights between both Reno and Las Vegas and Hawaii via Southern California---says flights will *not be affected.
Aloha is now the fifth U-S commercial airline operating under bankruptcy protection.
