Republic Airways: “Despite the significant progress achieved thus far to improve our consolidated business results, we still consumed USD39 million of cash in the first six months of 2012; this is unsustainable over the long term. We must continue the ongoing effort to restructure our small regional jet operations so that we can return our Company to sustainable long-term health and competitiveness,” Bryan Bedford, chairman and CEO.
