It's been a pretty lousy airline for many years, and has only stayed in business by serving a number of routes that had limited competition.

Unreliable, known in CI as FlyMaybe.

No doubt Alex Cruz is waiting to get his greasy hands on it.
One thing you can say for the French, when civilization falls they have less far to fall than everyone else.

Wouldn’t wish that on anyone, but it’s Willie Walsh and the IAG board who make the strategic decisions, fat Spanish waiter is just an employee, at the moment ^#(^

I have a notion that Stobarts may come back in with a lower offer than last time.

Seems that Flybe is going to be rebranded as Virgin Atlantic.

It would appear that so is Stobart Air

Apparently the combined airlines will be named Connect Airways and operate under the Virgin Atlantic name.
