Always use your credit card.
Last week we bought tickets to Hilo for June through ATA and yesterday they ceased operations with no refunds. Oops.
So potentially we are out $1200 but it looks like our credit card company is going to protect us (no guarantee yet).
Unfortunately I already paid the credit card but I am optimistic.
One of my first thoughts was of anyone on vacation now with no airline to get them home.
I also think about people for whom a trip to Hawaii is a once in a lifetime sort of thing and the airline closed and is not giving back their money.
Wild story, eh?
