MYT must be regarded as a dodgy prospect right now. But if you really look closely, most have good prospects for seeing out the winter whatever the mad Irishman might want us to believe. If any go from the UK, I think they'll be bit-part players rather than well-knowns (e.g. someone like EUJet will go rather than someone like BMI or FlyBe).

I'd say probably MYT, although they have been holding on for a long time. BA, as Evolution said, won't be going bust any time soon. With good profits, good loads and a good outlook, it doesn't matter how old their FA's are

Do you think the predictions of one 'mad Irish man' - MOL are correct?
He says its going to be a 'blood bath this winter'. The LOCO's will be dropping like flies etc etc.
I wonder if he's trying to distract attention away from FR? They are exposed to the high fuel charges (limited hedging) and offering free flight offers more often than not. The airline has also has lots of new aircraft to pay for.
I don't thin FR will go bust, but I think MOL comments this winter have been made for the sole purpose of deflecting attention away from FR and its share price?

I think they will.. good ridance and all! Making pilots pay for their uniforms, car parking, days off, training, applications, and not allowing them crew meals, or even crew water! Not to mention all these rediculous ideas they keep on coming out with to cut their own costs. They deserve to go down, i just can't wait to see EasyJet boom when it happens! Then we'll see who's the smart ass in town, Mr O'Leary!

Let me say that I most definately do not wish to see any carrier go bust.
But if I had to speculate on the next one in the UK to go I would stick my neck out and say possibly Air Wales. Too many routes have been started and quickly dropped for such a small carrier to prosper. Is a code-share with WW really something to shout from the rooftops given WW's own fragile state?
Another contender would have been EU Jet, but of course we all know this is an IRISH airline, not UK.

LOL. If they were so shit, then they wouldn't be so successful and wouldn't be going from strength-to-strength year-on-year. If they were so shit they'd be going backwards, not forwards. Quite a simple concept!
