Remember Canada 3000. This is almost as bad save for one thing.
The people who are stranded are not Skyservice customers but rather customers of Signature Vacations, Sunquest Vacations, and Nolitours for the most part.
These tour operators will work hard to bring their customers back quickly. In fact early reports are that already 80% of flights have been repaced with new aircraft.
Many good people will be out of jobs from Skyservice. But the industry itself will hardly feel a blip in a week.
Skyservice was not always seen as the best airline by travellers. People found their pitch, the space between seats, too tight. But other than that they tried to do a good joy.
Travel is a competitive world and it is tough when we see a victum of survival of the fittest.
