September 28, 2014 - On Friday, PEOPLExpress
announced that it is temporarily suspending
service effective immediately and plans to
resume service on or about October 16.
The company reported that recent aircraft and
crew availability and maintenance issues,
including an aircraft recently damaged by a
vendor's truck, an engine change and a lack of a
planned spare aircraft, have made it challenging
to operate a full schedule, preventing the
company from fulfilling its needs.
PEOPLExpress is are currently processing refunds
for passengers for flights booked through
October 15, which will take five to seven
business days. For reservations beyond October
15, passengers will receive a notification by
e-mail as soon as company service resumption
plans are in place.
