The PLUNA pilots' union, the Asociacion Civil de Pilotos de Lineas Aereas (ACIPLA), informed a committee of the Uruguayan House of Representatives that three of PLUNA's CRJ-900's; CX-CRA, CX-CRB, and CX-CRC, the earliest deliveries to the airline, require US$ 5 million in maintenance work, a cost that has not been taken into account in the upcoming auction of PLUNA's assets.  The union has also warned that the longer the former PLUNA fleet stays on the ground the greater the costs that will be incurred due to ongoing maintenance required to keep the aircraft flight-ready.
