GLO Airlines Seeks Bankruptcy Protection

GLO Airlines Seeks Bankruptcy Protection On Sunday, FlyGLO LLC filed a voluntary petition for bankruptcy in federal court in New Orleans, listing assets and liabilities of between $10 million and $50 million, with up to 49 creditors. According to court papers, GLO’s largest unsecured creditor is GE Engine Services, of Ohio, which is owed nearly $980,000. (source The Advocate) In a statement Monday, Jordan Mitchell, a GLO spokesman, blamed the reorganization on the airline’s dispute with Corporate Flight Management. He said GLO was working toward “a solution that will get us back flying a full schedule.” (source AL.com) “After raising serious concerns over its performance and business practices, rather than find solutions, the air carrier unilaterally terminated its contract to operate GLO’s program,” the company said. “This entirely unjustified action has put GLO’s operations and the financial health of many of GLO’s partners at risk.” “We plan to offer our full schedule between now and the 27th,” he told AL.com. “We are hopeful to have more information for you tomorrow while we continue to move towards a solution that will get us back flying a full schedule just as soon as practicable.” Trey Fayard, GLO Founder & CEO, said they are taking this step now “because we value our customers too much to provide inferior service.” “It was a difficult decision, but a necessary one to protect everyone involved,”...

Full Text: Trump’s Immigration Executive Order and Ban Jan 2016

By the authority vested in me as President by the Constitution and laws of the United States of America, including the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA), 8 U.S.C. 1101 et seq., and section 301 of title 3, United States Code, and to protect the American people from terrorist attacks by foreign nationals admitted to the United States, it is hereby ordered as follows: Section 1. Purpose. The visa-issuance process plays a crucial role in detecting individuals with terrorist ties and stopping them from entering the United States. Perhaps in no instance was that more apparent than the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, when State Department policy prevented consular officers from properly scrutinizing the visa applications of several of the 19 foreign nationals who went on to murder nearly 3,000 Americans. And while the visa-issuance process was reviewed and amended after the September 11 attacks to better detect would-be terrorists from receiving visas, these measures did not stop attacks by foreign nationals who were admitted to the United States. Numerous foreign-born individuals have been convicted or implicated in terrorism-related crimes since September 11, 2001, including foreign nationals who entered the United States after receiving visitor, student, or employment visas, or who entered through the United States refugee resettlement program. Deteriorating conditions in certain countries due to war, strife, disaster, and civil unrest increase the likelihood that terrorists will use...
