    Great shame this morning to hear Silverjet have…as yet…been unable to secure funding from their Middle East source.
    They have therefore suspended all flights, & their website appears off line.

    I flew them some weeks ago to Dubai, & the relaxation of NOT going via LHR, the lounge welcome & attentative service before & during the flight was stimulating compared to other airlines C class. I would have thought some wealthy individual would have picked them up, upgraded the aircraft, & actually wanted a small Business only Airline, with a few, but great service that has succeeded. It was breaking even i believe…

    A great shame, as for the young staff group who appeared to put their all into making the airline well regarded…sincerely hope they find funding & re-commence.

    However, all concerned in their staff teams deserve to be congratulated in a very competative industry, with only big players surviving.
    Their efforts have been much valued, & they should be proud of the work they have achieved…they really had re-created a long gone ease, & enjoyment of travel…


    I also flew with them to Dubai and the service by the staff was brilliant. The Silver lounge is great and as you say totally stress free. It is a great shame.


    I think someone should launch an all-first class airline – now.

    When the crunch comes the successful people are the ones who expand when everyone else fails.


    a real, real shame Silverjet were brilliant


    Having flown with Silverjet on a number of occasions on the Dubai – Luton – Dubai route I am really disappointed at this. The service on the ground and in the air was excellent, as was the value for money. I hope the staff are being looked after properly. They deserve it. Now back to the faceless big carriers for me unfortunately.


    I have used them twice in the last couple of months on the
    New York run ,its a great shame to hear the news ,the service
    and staff where Spot on.
    I hope somebody comes to there rescue, if i could i would !
    All the best to all at Silverjet.
