Re: Updated: Virgin Atlantic seeks restructuring; files for BK in US Court

Chapter 15 is when a non-U.S. debtor files for bankruptcy in the U.S. court system. LATAM, Avianca, did the same. Correct me if I am wrong, but there is no protection from creditors in the UK? In the US, the bankruptcy code gives relief from creditors, and allows time to reorganize a plan to come o...
