Chapter 11 is one of the unique bankruptcy codes in the world as it is not punitive. For many businesses, Chapter 11 is no death sentence, but a chance to reorganise and recover from losses. Much of the ailing US steel industry restructured its operations with the help of Chapter 11 in 2001, and later the airline industry followed the trend, where four out of the seven major US airlines had resorted to Chapter 11. In 2005, the auto-parts industry was adopting this trend.
