Mint Airways is the next to follow after Cimber Sterling, City Airlines and Skyways.

One of their a/c EC-LBC (the ex G-CEJM of Flyglobespan) hasn't flown for a LONG time

Sad, I saw them operating charters for TCX at MAN last year, lovely looking 757s! Shame they're probably going to FedEx now  .

Still, at least they will not meet the axeman.

HI

Sad to hear another airlines is gone!   .I think this will not be the last as I am sure a few more airlines are on the death row for going bankrupt! How big was this airline, Where did they operate from??

Oh no, not Mint - I saw one of their 757s at LHR in December 2010 just after they had reopened because of the snow, always wondered about them, funny little airline really, then again it seems the "funny little airlines" aren't surviving anymore

Mint had two Boeing 757-200's. EC-LBC and EC-LHL. I have flown on both. A little tired and worn, which can be expected for their age and the type of ops they were used on. Sad to see their livery go.

Quoting HullCitySpotter (Thread starter):

It is not a shame, the aircraft will be used for flying freight instead of passengers. I don't see any shame in that. Unless you meant that the airline going bankrupt and those people who lost their job, yes that is a shame.
