Re: Germania Bankrupt

I'm sad to see Germania go, but I'd never thought they had a 34 plane fleet. Does anybody here have an idea who Airbus will replace Germania with on their XFW-TLS route?

The airlines can't have it both ways. If a person needs to buy two seats because he is large they can't come back and take it away if they overbook.
What would Spirit have done if somebodu had booked a seat for her/his cello? Put it in the cargo hold?
