Mesa to Pay $80 Million to Hawaiian Airlines

A judge has ordered Mesa to pay $80 million to Hawaiian Airlines after finding that Mesa engaged in unfair competition with the island carrier.  In short, it was alleged that Mesa feigned interest in the then-bankrupt carrier to gain information that they then used to launch their own intra-island airline (Go!).  Mesa, which has placed their CFO on administrative leave because of the case, says they will appeal.
