Why I am not surprised? I remember that difficulties began last summer. At that time I was working as check in agent in EYVI airport. First there was a lot of delays, later they upgraded check in computer system and it causes even more delays. Passengers were really angry and were trying to avoid this company flights. And now I am not surprised they have serious financial difficulties. By the way first delays was caused because of another air companys "Cimber Sterling" bankruptcy.

Well then. Hardly a surprise since last weeks trouble in ARN for non-payment of NAV and handling etc fees. Add the uncontrolled growth in the last few years with including the Donbassaero and Dniproavia operating under Aerosvit callsigns rather than independent companies. I wonder if this means that the latter two companies are also gone t.its up with Aerosvit and if rest of Ihor's empire is going to take a hit as well? Good news for MAU or rather Ukraine International.
