Delta's Bankruptcy Exit Plan Clears Hurdle

Delta now begins to seek its creditors' backing for the plan.

Separately on Wednesday, Hardin also blocked pilots at Comair, a Delta subsidiary, from going on strike if the unit imposes wage cuts and other concessions.

Hardin granted Comair's request to block a strike and any other job actions that would disrupt Comair's operations, Comair spokeswoman Kate Marx said.

The pilots had authorized their union leaders to call a strike if the airline throws out their contract and imposes concessions.

The Air Line Pilots Association, which represents Comair's 1,500 pilots, will abide by the judge's ruling, said Paul Denke, a union spokesman. Denke added that the union will appeal. Comair and the union have been locked in a running battle over a concessions plan that was contingent on cuts among other worker groups.
