That's really a bad news for my money.....

Me and 3 others A.net member last December were involved in the GOODjet flights suspension. We were left "alone" in Sweden and to go back home we had to take 2 Ryanair flights booked two day before departure, so we paid a lot of money.
But GOODjet wrote us an email at mid December to inform us they give back us ours money, but after this news, I could say GOOD-BYE FOREVER to my money....

The first of many of the new low cost operators to collapse over the next 18 months.

There is no pot of gold at the end of the low cost rainbow.... this is the toughhest winter in a decade for airlines, and its about to get worse, especially if we (read: when we) pay a visit to Iraq.

It appears that yields and passengers have dried up of late, with very little bookings expected for January and February. Any non established carrier without a wealthy carrier could probably be in trouble. Germania, Norwegian, MyTravellite,Air Lib are amongst some I am worried about.




The world is really getting smaller these days

In my opinion Germania have a established company in the back until they fly for Hapag-Lloyd Express.....

But you are (unfortunately) 100% right about the other carriers.

That's right - Transair also filed for bankrupcy as they are unable to recover from the loss that Goodjet caused them. In addition they lost more business when TrafficEuropa folded ...
