As RYR, on their website, labels Spanair as a financially unstable airline, therefore always at risk, would MOL care to enlighten us as to which UNION it was that caused this financial instability? Surely it can't have been a management screw up. Only unions can be the root of any demise. They are the evil that angelic management needs to keep at bay at what ever cost. Every airline that I know that has gone down the pan was in spite of unions trying to help the cause. It was always blinkered and incompetent suits that lit the blue touch paper and blew them up.
Great to see people with their fingers on the pulse. . . . this happened when. . . . . . let me see, Friday, and we are now, Er Monday, well, thanks for posting
Actually, that is a bit harsh, I should probably direct my sarcasm to the Beeb for taking so long to put it up on their news. I think anyone affected has probably found out (the hard way) the news already, without the Beebs help.
Yep, but not till yesterday, I guess unless you were Wayne & Waynetta stuck in Benidorm with 3 urchins it probably didn't matter.
For those that have recently posted here, I merely wondered if you thought those of us employed in the aviation industry hadn't noticed , didn't expect it to loom large in the radar of firstname.lastname@example.org

What a great pity. I have fond memories of Business Class trips on Spanair between Madrid and Germany. The catering and in-flight service were superb - far better than flying with Lufthansa. So I always arranged my buisness trips to use Spanair rather than LH.
Gone now though. Very sad.
I see that the nasty little Irish jackal is sniffing around trying to take advantage of the situation.
Yet another reason NEVER to demean myself by flying with that tawdry outfit.
BEagle - while Ryanair can be distasteful, it's a basic rule of business that when one company goes bust, its competitors start hovering around like vultures trying to pick off whatever they can. I'm sure Vueling, Iberia, easyJet and others are doing the same - they just aren't always so open about it.
