The board of Pinnacle Airlines Inc. is getting an update this week on whether to keep the company based in Memphis compared to moving its headquarters to the Twin Cities or Detroit, The Commercial Appeal reports. "We still have a lot of work to do before a decision is made," spokesman Joe Williams said.

Pinnacle bought Mesaba Airlines in July 2010 and closed that company's 50,000-square-foot Eagan headquarters earlier this year.

Pinnacle is in the middle of a Chapter 11 bankruptcy reorganization.
