The timing of this is bad, with Austrian pulling out of Donetsk, as well. Lufthansa has been selling out quicker. Turkish has a really erratic schedule on IST-DOK, too.....with one day the flight will be 725am, and the next day it will be 615p. Similar type of deal with LOT's JFK-WAW, to mention another factor. Also, some reduction in frequency on overwater flights to a hub with useful connections to Ukrainian cities OTHER THAN Kiev. As a result, a bit more difficult to find a routing that works AND has space.

I can't say I'm sorry to see them go, they were a poor quality airline with terrible staff, so I can't even say I feel for the staff, they were probably part of the problem, I've had the misfortune to have to fly with the 5-6 times over the past few years.

Sad for us, they were an unusual option for the Atlantic run, and to BKK / PEK - but the service was never very good - would it kill you to smile, or say thank you? So Europe's biggest country (by area) has no longhaul flights now? London and Dubai are the furthest you can fly from the capital, Kiev. Right?

Noticed 3 VV 767s parked next to each other, iced over. Same thing with a bunch of VV 737s, 3 Dniproavia ERJ's and 2 Windrose A320's.

Was in WAW today. VV to Kiev was suppose to leave around 3 PM.
Flight is shown as "delayed". Check in counter was open and people were told that airline suspended operations. Nevertheless it was never marked as "cancelled" and is still "delayed".
At least 4 Aerosvit aircraft are being held back at CPH, ARN, WAW, TLV due to unpaid fees and bills.

Visually checked a moment ago (12:10h lt), the is a yellow and blue VV aircraft parked on a remote stand northwest of WAW's terminal building. Viewed from the Courtyard hotel it looks like a B737; it had been there already this morning around 10:00h.

VV208 from Warsaw is expected to arrive in Kiev at 23:53, so they did manage to leave WAW.
