VS always sniff around airlines in distress but don't think they are seriously interested. Unless their new mentors DL/AF/KL have ideas
Nearly! The VS slots for MAN were leased TO other airlines. One of the conditions of the remedy slots is that the recipient must be using all of their own slots and cannot have any leased out. So they had to launch something quickly to be eligible. Thats why MAN started before the Scottish routes.
