Inter-island Hawaiian carrier go! airlines reported a 12% rise in February traffic, bucking broader trends in both the airline and tourism industries. But the Mesa Air Group subsidiary suffered a legal setback on Tuesday when a federal judge ruled that go! could not assume the name and other intellectual property of bankrupt rival Aloha Airlines. Judge Lloyd King said the auction for the Aloha name was invalid due to complaints that some interested parties, including the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers, were blocked from bidding.
