Not really my place to disclose before the announcement but, there's not much green!
Any non-EU citizens could well have had visa issues with Bulgaria, Macedonia, Romania and Serbia.
Even by Ryanair standards it does seem particularly poor form to leave passenger a 10+ hour bus ride away with no reasonable alternative travel arrangements.
I would grumble about a 4 hour bus ride finishing my air trip. But were it done moderately expeditiously only a grumble. I've had it happen on a train trip. Annoying, did not ruin my day. Their bus journey would have been a lot longer than 4 hours. It would be a minimum of 10 hours+, plus 2 sometim...Jump to post

I wonder if Wizz Air UK could try a UK-Istanbul flight, which may allow another aircraft with a "virtual stand" (late night departure, morning return to Luton). Wizzair does not fly to Turkey at all, so this seems highly unlikely. Besides, the London - Istanbul market is quite saturated a...Jump to post

That's not smoke, just part of the mountains (same as what you see under the plane).
The press conference stated there was no pre or post-crash fire.
I still think the most deadly aircraft accident in Europe for some years deserves a more appropriate topic title.
Moderators, Can the title of the below topic be renamed to emphasise that 20 people died (it is worst crash in Europe for some years), remove the movie reference, and the “today” (since it is already yesterday). 20 dead in Junkers Ju-52 crash in Switzerland http://www.airliners.net/forum/viewtopic.p...Jump to post
Some video footage from previous JU-Air Alpine sightseeing flying:
It's incredible that one day after the accident there is almost no background info in the media, no word about how many passengers were on board (only how many passengers the Ju-52 can carry). I can only explain this with the character of the Swiss people who never panic but stay perfectly calm no ...Jump to post
We are now 16 hours after the accident and still no official communication on the circumstances or number of deaths (except the crash confirmation). There may have reasons (talking to the families), but it is an odd approach by the Cantonal Police + STSB leading to totally misleading media coverage....Jump to post
Are there no journalists working in Switzerland on a Saturday evening?
This may not be a "normal" airline accident but it is nevertheless one where a relatively sizeable number of paying passengers were being carried from A to B.
This was the trip:
https://www.ju-air.ch/app/download/6799 ... 1510133689
It is barely being covered in the mainstream Swiss news. Is there some confusion with the other light aircraft crash earlier today?

My money's on VS, they're having issues with how tight their fleet utilization is, and could fill A380s to MCO and possibly CUN.
