V Bird Will Never Fly Again

Thu Dec 16, 2004 1:58 am

Today interested investers of bankrupt Dutch LCC V Bird have withdrawn. After more than 2 months after the last flight (on october 8) it becomes clear that this orginally Jetblue-styled airline will never fly again....  Sad

I always hate to see the demise of any airline. I wonder who will pick up the aircraft?

Planes (3 leased A320's) have already been flown to Canada (Winnipeg) and USA (I think) in october. ILFC lost its confidence in the airline. Rumours say they will return to Europe to fly for Germanwings, Lufthansa's LCC.

Sad news! Flew them on a returntrip to Vienna last June operated by an Aero Flight A320. Pretty good load on the route, sad they did not survive.
