Just to be clear, since I haven’t been following Icelandair during this pandemic and things may have been lost in translation, the US people who bought WOW’s brand (not the former WOW executives trying to start PLAY) are planning/trying to buy into Icelandair?[/quote] That’s right.

Interesting development: https://www.visir.is/g/20202013487d/skradi-sig-fyrir-storum-hlut-i-icelandair In English: A spokeswoman for businesswoman Michele Roosevelt Edwards Ballarin, says she has made a binding offer in Icelandair's share offering. According to sources in the news agency, the offer ...Jump to post
I highly doubt that this will lead to more US service. BRU has traditionally been a smaller TATL market as it just really doesn't have the same tourist appeal as say AMS or MAD, and a number of services have come/gone over the years. Current BRU-US service: SN: JFK/ORD DL: ATL/JFK UA: ORD/EWR/IAD A...Jump to post

I was also wondering how this works with airline crews. If they are not allowed entry into the U.S. I would assume it would pose many challenges. Even outside the fact that they are interacting and possibly infecting the passengers.Jump to post
According to this, the virus is now considering roughly 20 deadlier than the seasonal flu:

The impact on aviation will be significant all around if that holds true.
When in doubt, coffee?

On Air India, or in general??
It was in general. This didn't happen because a last minute curve ball was thrown at me that I wasn't expecting.
I would be surprised if they chose to go via KEF. Costs are high and the weather, particular during their long winter season, is quite bad. I would think they would pick a lower cost market in Europe, with higher traffic volumes. N.E. United States to Ireland may be a route that they could pack solid.Jump to post

Why should FI have helped WOW? Corporations are not charities. WOW was poorly managed and suffered because of it. End of story. It was not FI's job to come in and rescue them.
Is there still any talk of the former management team starting another airline? If I recall, right after the collapse, they planned to start this summer ( which was doubtful IMO )! Any news on the subject?Jump to post
It looks like they (although its apparently not clear who is running the fund raising web page) are trying to raise funds by getting the public to invest:

According to this article, YUL is a tech issue... NOT seized by a lessor.
Depending on what is the actual case, the effect of misreporting (if that is the case) during such a critical time for this company can really do some heavy damage.

This article is also claiming the Chicago and Pittsburgh flights are cancelled today...... Those cities were closed back in January..... Lovely lack of fact checking.....
Icelandair has already rejected talks with WOW twice before. That they are now in the picture again for the third time and now with some sort of support from the authorities suggests to me that this is mostly just about orderly winding down WOW operations and avoiding chaos.

You should always remain polite, just take a pic of the agent and email it to the presidents office kindly explaining you experience. But ALWAYS be polite.

Having worked in aviation for about fifteen years - you see the good, the bad, and the ugly. Sometimes agents over-react. Sometimes passengers over-react.
