One of the U.K ‘s biggest regional airlines has suddenly collapsed, almost reminiscent of the previous one that did such a few months ago that left holidayers stranded across the world. According to multiple reports, Flybe Airlines has let go of thousands of staffers; lost the company, and has pretty much gone bankrupt.
So let’s catch everybody up to speed with what people should know:
- Flybe planes are currently impounded in London and aren’t being flown.
- People are stranded across Europe, it is unclear whether or not the government will order a rescue mission to have them flown home. Truthfully, this is probably the third airline collapse in recent memory.
- 2,000 or so have reportedly lost their jobs at the airline — which most have described as having been “led by donkeys.”
- Refund requests probably won’t be covered if they were bought directly through the airline, but our best advice is to contact your bank to request a refund and give them full details as to what happened.
- *Some travel companies are already planning to issue refunds to bookings made through them.
- It is believed that the coronavirus was the nail in the coffin for the already struggling airliner.
