I can't make this stuff up

Let me set the scene: A boardroom full of stiff, black suited lawyers. They are arguing the intimate details regarding Hawaiian Airlines' accusation about Mesa's Hawaiian adventure, go!, and corporate espionage. A key player, Mesa's CFO, accidentally highlighted the wrong files on his hard drive while he was deleting his private PORN collection and wiped out files related to the case. I don't know which is worse: the fact that he had porn or that he maybe kept intimate competitor data in the same folder. Sometimes this industry manages to create a chuckle or two.

See, Hawaiian Airlines was going through bankruptcy court and Mesa Air Group was a potential investor in a restructured airline. However, Mesa opted out of a deal and established its own inter-island carrier, go!. Hawaiian Airlines was a little disturbed by this because Mesa Air Group had been given private data, and then created a carrier to compete with Hawaiian. Not everybody plays fair in this world. I can't wait to see if more surprises pop up during this Agatha Christ case.
