Seems this "in the News" Holiday Company is at it again, a pal of going on a quick 7 days to a Greek Island should have flown early doors today Sat 6 th Aug but is currently taking up rooms at the central Manchester Hilton ,..then moving later tonight to another nearby Hotel..

It seems the A/c has gone Tech , sad for my pal but he has no children with him, but what about those who have...seems Small Planet has been threatened with having A/c impounded for failure to pay bills, with company registered in Latvia.....are they the next to go bust with loads of families left abroad..?:suspect:

38 hour delay if it is on time on revised sked.
That's about 22.5% of his holiday gone.

SP is an airline not a holiday company based in Vilnius and Poland
they started here a few years ago with an ageing classic 737 fleet

the tour companies such as Olympic holidays choose to use this outfit again since the past few summers and the problems continue - last summer settled down and was not too bad but this summer has seen major delays again like the first year.

Germania on the other hand has superb timekeeping but their UK IT contract was dumped in favour of going back to SP

Enter Air, Travel service/smart wings are all eastern European airlines that are or have been chartered by UK tour companies

we no longer have the likes of BIA Dan Air Britannia Caledonian air2000 air Europe etc etc - only monarch is left but they have snubbed the IT market in favour of going it alone scheduled Loco

At the risk of aviation content taking hold in JB, to add to your list some other suspects such as Air Atlanta and Air Scandic also come to mind - the latter seems to change it's name every other season, but the same unreliable fleet of TriStars!
