An insult to those staff who have lost jobs and customers who have lost money that the sister airline to the one that shut down can suddenly cherrypick and takeover over routes as they please. What’s next? Have their aircraft too?

Not quite sure that I agree. It would be like if Aer Lingus went bust, would BA be expected to bail them out? Even if they are owned by the same group?

also hardly an insult when the sister airline has openly invited those exstaff to work for them and has started to reinstate several routes to start with

Oh great, how generous. Maybe they’ll let them keep the same payroll number too.

[color=left=#000000]Despite having the same parent company, if an airline goes bust, wouldn't the airport operator put the slots back up for sale/auction/whatever? Can another airline just take them straightaway? Surely if there is some value to the slots then they should be paying the administrator for them to give back towards the creditors? [/color]
Only if demand for slots massively outweighs supply such as in the case of Heathrow. If there's plenty of capacity, where's the monetary value in a slot?

There is a provision under IATA rules for the wholesale shifting of slots from one group company to another
