Airlines gone bust or collapsed?

This is a generic question to everybody, is there anyway on the net or does anybody have a comprehensive list of all the airlines that have gone bust or collapsed since September 11th?
I have searched and all i get back are the last batch of names including Eos, Maxjet, XL Airways, Futura, Zoom, Aloha, ATA, can anyone help with this? i remember Swissair and Sabena being big casualties also.
Either post on here or mail it to me at [email protected] thanks

Wikipedia lists all the Airlines under 'Defunct' in Alphabetical Order.

Easy to use.

Danger Defunct Airlines

Take look at justplanes.com lists all airlines that have gone bust or merged in to other airlines since 2000.

I have copy pasted this from a Club 328 thread where someone asked when the BBC programme about the HBOS Reading branch (which funded CJS and other aviation companies) was coming out. I imagine several people on this site would also like to know as it will presumably explain why several airlines went bust.

BBC Radio programme

The BBC Programme is 'File On Four' radio 4, Tuesday 26 may at 8.00pm. and is repeated next Sunday at 5.00pm, although I imagine it will be available on the BBC website at any time after Tuesday. The story will also be broadcast across the BBC news channels on TV and radio on the same day.

Anyone who feels they have lost out because of the CJS, Club 328 or Euromanx debacles, may also like to know their is a Debate in the House Of Commons on the 2nd June (Tuesday week) specifically on the subject of the Reading Branch of Bank of Scotland and its treatment of small businesses - very relevant to several aviation companies. If you have been directly affected and want to support this debate, you should get your MP to contact James Paice who propossed it.

I cannot say what the BBC programme is actually about because I don't know the details and the BBC have been very protective of letting any thing slip out prior to broadcast. However, I do know they have been researching for 14 weeks and one of the Companies they have looked at in depth is CJS - the parent Company of Club 328, Euromanx, J.E.T.S . It's also the Company that lost BoS millions of pounds.
