Only if necessary to get appropriate labor contract and other longer term fixes. It will create borrowing problems, and a lot of extra cost if ability to borrow is even available if bondholders are stiffed. Bad precedent that will restrict future ability to borrow and contract.

How many respondents are qualified to offer a truly informed opinion on such a complex topic? I'm not.

Just do it and get over it! This ongoing drama is ridiculous. Maybe if they file for bankruptcy we can finally move forward.
