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.

While Ravn Air Group is planning to restart daily commercial service on Thursday — 28 days after suspending it in the wake of a fatal plane crash — charter flights continue to operate between Unalaska and Anchorage.

It's been almost a month since a plane crashed at Unalaska's airport, killing one passenger and injuring more than a dozen others.

The accident required a major emergency response involving city staffers and volunteers, members of UniSea's safety team, and many others. While it was a big task for the community, local officials have said they're pretty happy with the effort.
