Direct Air files for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection and reoganization

Direct Air (Myrtle Beach) yesterday (March 16) filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection and reorganization. The public charter company suddenly ceased all operations on March 13 stranding passengers throughout its system. Given the way it suspended operations it is not likely the company would be welcomed back at many of these airports it served.
