Aloha Pilots Authorize Strike

HONOLULU (KHNL) -- The remaining Aloha Airlines pilots voted Wednesday night to authorize a strike.

The airline stopped passenger service last month, but the pilots have been fighting over who will fly Aloha's cargo flights.

A strike could devastate the neighbor islands, which depend on Aloha to ship 85% of their goods.

The pilots union has not been able to talk to Aloha management since April 7th.

If Aloha's cargo operation shuts down, there isn't another airline that can easily take over.

Hawaiian Airlines is looking to get Boeing 717 cargo planes to Hawaii, but that won't happen until about September.
