After weeks of confusion over the validity of tickets, Alaska Airlines has canceled all existing flight reservations to and from Unalaska through May 31, 2020. 

In a statement released Friday afternoon, the airline said it's automatically rebooking current ticket-holders through RavnAir Group, but any new reservations will have to go directly through Ravn.

The PenAir flight that crashed at Unalaska's airport last month, killing one passenger, landed amid unfavorable, shifting winds, according to an initial federal report released Friday.

It was also captained by a pilot with relatively little experience at the controls of the Saab 2000 plane he was flying, the report said.

Ravn Air Group and Alaska Airlines are planning to hold a public meeting in Unalaska amid intense community criticism over their handling of air service in the wake of last month's fatal plane crash.

"Ravn Air does plan on coming out and having a community meeting during early December," said City Manager Erin Reinders on Tuesday. "The first two weeks is what they've told me they're working with."

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.

Despite plans to resume Unalaska's regular flights on Thursday, Ravn Air Group and Alaska Airlines haven't addressed the validity of tickets booked before last month's fatal plane crash — or Ravn's decision to suspend commercial service for the last 27 days.
