Seems Qatar Airways decided to do not sign the agreement and the government will not invest anymore in them so, I guess this is the end?

I think so as well.....

Qatar and the Govern were the only ones that can help and now both of them are running away....

What about Singapore Airlines?? SQ flight to SIN-BCN-GRU is doing very good but is subjet to JK, if they close they will not be allow to continue flying, so, Can we see some investment and management coming from SQ to JK??

That would be a real shame if they go under! They are increasing BCN to BEG from three to four weekly this summer and they are currently the only link we have with Spain.

1)You don't have to be a premium carrier to be a member of an alliance.

2)SAS (a *A founding member) use to own almost all of Spanair, now they are just a minority stakeholder.

Considering LH Italia fell flat on it's face, very little. LH are trying to get rid of one loss making carrier, they don't want another.

The problem with JK is that it needs a complete turnaround, not just an investor pumping more money in. It is a short-haul EU airline with a legacy cost structure offering not much more than a LCC. They don't offer anything different to justify the higher prices they would need to offset their high cost base. If I want legacy service there are better options. If I want LCC, BCN is full of them with FR, U2, VY etc etc. It's almost a bit like a Spanish BMI.

How much feed does SQ get from JK at BCN? Is it significant or can the route survive without feed? That is the key.

Looks like LH has interrupted their buying spree for now and is trying to clean up (see LH Italia closure and BD sale). However I do think that JK's Star partners have in the past largely neglected them and the possibility to use them to make BCN a secondary Star hub, which I think could have been there. Too late now.

This has been communicated by a couple of people I know working in BCN and MAD. Sadly it seems they are collapsing.

Best wishes to all the employees if it is true, not good news at all for them.

Rephrase: Is the cost of that feed at BCN worth the cost/risk of buying JK, or should BCN be reduced in frequency for SQ? Could SQ find other feed? I suspect SQ won't bid a penny for JK.

Putting a lot of money in a whole airline just to save one route? Highly unlikely if you ask me.

UX is heavily aligned with Spanair, they codeshare on just about everything despite the different alliances, so this will affect them too.

They still have TAP Portugal from the South and Lufthansa + Swiss will provide enough connections to the key cities from the other side. I don't think they have to worry about that. I don't think Spanair wasn't adding much value for them anyway.
