Sad day for UK aviation.
Ditto to all of the above. 1977-1993 in my case. Best memories of a 40+ year career in aviation.

Sad for the passengers of course - very distressing having lost their holidays but most likely will get their money back. I have greater sympathy for the staff, a few of whom have shown incredible loyalty down the years and whom I have worked with at some stage. Hopefully another airline will seize the opportunity, set up a Luton operation and take on at least some of those who have lost their jobs.
