Over the last month alone shares of Baltia Air Lines Inc (OTCMKTS:BLTA) have fallen by more than 50% as investors wait for the FAA to give the company clearance to begin flying.

While it seems as if many shareholders had been holding onto hope that the FAA would allow the company to begin international flights as early as next month, it now appears that the source of this information may have been incorrect after a shareholder meeting took place yesterday at JFK Airport in NYC. Although a meeting between Baltia and the FAA on December 16 went well according to the company, there are concerns about both the company’s finances as well as an industry-wide issue with aircraft slides which may delay any decision made by the FAA until after January. In the meantime the company did state that they will likely forego any sort fo reverse split and that they are at the mercy now of the FAA.
