Aloha Airlines pilots said on Friday they have filed a complaint against the airline, citing management's "total disregard" for their collective bargaining agreement, and threatened to go on strike if no agreement is reached by April 26.

The complaint, filed in US Bankruptcy Court, seeks injunctive relief against the airline.

In a statement, the pilots alleged that the airline continues to repudiate the agreement by terminating pilots out of seniority order, terminating pilots' health plan, failing to provide furlough pay and benefits, among other complaints.

Aloha filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy on March 20, the statement said.
