the Arizona Republic SO Phoenix, Sat., Sept. 21, DENNIS THE MENACE fi.y Hank Ketchum "Well, if they're Pearl's, how come YOU'RE wearin' 'em?" City Council to sift Air Westcompli By PAUL SCHATT Complaints by citizens who feel Air West is providing second-rate service to Phoenix will be given to the Phoenix City Council soon, Mayor Graham said yesterday. "I think this is something I must bring to the attention of the City Council," he explained. "The city has to be concerned about any substandard service that could affect the economy of the Valley. "Several persons have detailed their complaints of poor service and canceled or delayed flights," he added. "I've also had some complaints that the equipment coming into Phoenix seems to be all their old planes." MANY PHOENIX residents have also complained to newsmen that old turboprop planes have been substituted for the fan jets that flew Phoenix schedules for Bonanza Air Lines before the merger in April of Bonanza with two California carriers, Pacific and West Coast airlines. The airline admits schedule problems but denies service reduction. Las Vegas and Reno officials have made the same charges and have asked the Civil Aeronautics Board to authorize competing service from their cities to Phoenix because of allegedly substandard Air West service. The Phoenix City Council last month was asked to join the two complaining Nevada cities and agreed to do so at a later date when its support can be most effective. The airline maintains most of the scheduling problems and canceled flights were caused by difficulties arising out of the fact there never had been a three-way merger before. "The complaints are valid but a little after the fact," said Gordon Kent, assistant to the vice president of Air West in San Francisco. "From about July 1 to 10 days ago we were running behind. We're still running late flights but our performance is on the uptrend now.

(UPI)The board of directors of Air West voted yesterday in favor of selling the airline to Howard Hughes. The directors, in a special meeting on the matter, voted to recommend shareholder approval of the sale of Air West to Hughes Tool Co., which the Nevada billionaire owns. NICK BEZ, chairman of the board, said a special shareholders meeting would be held Nov. 26 "to consider the Hughes Tool Co. proposal to acquire the airline and any other proposals which might be presented prior to that time." Bez said a majority of the directors voted to recommend the Hughes proposal to the shareholders. Hughes reportedly decided to buy the airline when he was inconvenienced by its failure to keep flights on schedule at Las Vegas, where he lives. He has offered about $90 million for it. Officials of the company had been sharply divided over whether to change from a publicly owned corporation to a subsidiary of Hughes Tool, which is 100 per cent owned by Hughes. THE DECISION to recommend the sale was reached in a three-hour closed-door meeting. When the session ended Bez and other officers of the company declined to discuss the matter. His statement was issued later through his office. Air West, which serves more than 100 cities in the western United States, Canada, and New Mexico, was created earlier this year through the merger of Pacific Air Lines West Coast Airlines and Bonanza Airlines. A Hughes spokesman said the offer amounts to about $22 a share for all the company's stock. Closing price of Air West on the American Stock Exchange yesterday was $18.50 a share. AIR WEST reported losses of $20 million in the last fiscal year. A spokesman for Hughes Tool Co. said Hughes moved to buy the airline because it was an opportunity for Hughes' capital to benefit both the airline and "the section of the country it serves."
