The airline says that it will be forced to liquidate without the pay cut. On October 7, Judge Stephen Mitchell will hear arguments for and against the pay cut, the news service notes.

In the meantime, the airline says it will continue to negotiate with unions on its proposed cost-reduction measures.

The news service reports that under the airline's plan, the average annual salary for pilots would drop from $155,000 to $119,000 and average annual pay for flight attendants would drop from $36,975 to $27,701.
