Disgusted, I am sorry you appear to be living up to your name. Whether it is a prediction or not the fact is it is having a bail out at a time when the likes of BA have stood on their own. If they had gone belly up they would not have the luxury of a bail out from the government unlike Air Malta
As to Concorde, I am sure that VK will have the true story but I understood that the write off would have happened whenever it finished because it was an aircraft that the governement developed when BOAC and then BA was a nationalised industry.
Air Malta is not alone in providing last minute medical assistance. I know that both BA and Flybe to LGW and Flybe to SOU provide simular activites for the Channel Islands to the UK mainland. Why should a lean and private Air Malta not provide the same.
