In a remarkable move, Hawaii's low cost airline go! is considering adopting the name of its former rival, Aloha Airlines.

Earlier this year, go! helped to force the long-established legacy carrier out of business, bringing about Aloha's collapse at the end of March 2008.

Quote:
Mesa Air Group Inc. made the deal with Aloha's former majority owner, Yucaipa Cos., to use the Aloha name as part of settling a lawsuit in which Aloha alleged that Mesa misused confidential information to launch go! and drive Aloha out of business. [...] Phoenix-based Mesa announced the agreement yesterday, and said it resolves a potentially damaging lawsuit and allows the company to focus on providing interisland air service possibly under the historic Aloha name early next year.
