HONOLULU, March 31 /PRNewswire/ -- In a statement released this evening, Hawaiian Airlines, Inc., a subsidiary of Hawaiian Holdings Inc. (Amex: HA; PCX) strongly disputed claims made by Boeing Capital Corp. in a news release issued today. In its statement the company said:
We are disappointed to learn of Boeing's action today. While we have not yet had an opportunity to review the motion, we believe it is a thinly veiled attempt by Boeing to distract the company and the Court during the 60-day statutory period during which the company is afforded the opportunity to renegotiate its leases. As to the May 2002 tender offer, it was both legal and proper, and publicly disclosed.
