The City of Unalaska may consider legal action against the airlines involved in last month's fatal plane crash.

City Councilor Shari Coleman proposed the idea at a meeting on Tuesday. She said the community is suffering from financial "collateral damage," as regular flights to and from Anchorage have been shut down for nearly four weeks.
