The board of directors at Pinnacle Airlines has eliminated Detroit from consideration for its potential new headquarters, the Commercial Appeal reports. The Memphis-based regional carrier is considering whether to move its home office to save money. Minnesota is the only other option still in contention.
"No action was taken other than to eliminate Detroit from the list of considerations. We still have a lot of work to do before we make a decision," Pinnacle spokesman Joe Williams said.
Mesaba Airlines was acquired by Pinnacle in July 2010. The company’s 50,000-square-foot Eagan headquarters was closed earlier this year.
Pinnacle is in the middle of a Chapter 11 bankruptcy reorganization.
