Former employees organize, plan to sue defunct airline

Date Posted: 2003-06-14

Lequios Airline, an Okinawan pipedream with plans and hopes flying high that went bust in April without ever getting its wings off the ground, is facing the ire of the hundreds of people who invested in the venture, and about 70 former employees who were hired for stewardesses, ground workers, pilots and other jobs have organized a group called the "Victims of Lequios Union."

The group had its first meeting with the defunct airline's management in Tokyo on Jun. 6. The main question was how to collect unpaid salaries from the company. The management response was that since the company never had any revenues, there's no money to pay the wages owed to employees. The money that the company had collected from investors has been either used up or returned to investors when the company was dissolved.

The employee side countered that such problems are none of their concern, and said that they would go to the court to press their case. However, as the company has been dissolved, the chances seem to be slim that any of the employees will ever see a yen of compensation that was once promised to them.
