More airlines on the brink of bankruptcy or liquidation

With more airlines on the brink of bankruptcy, and some of those already in bankruptcy moving closer to possible liquidation, there’s been steadily rising concern for what travellers need to know about tickets, travel, and frequent flyer mileage credits with bankrupt or liquidated airlines.

In addition to my FAQ About Airline Bankruptcies , I’m interviewed on this in a Q and A in Business Week online, and in the San Jose Mercury News . Jane Engle does some interesting further digging into the (lack of) legal guarantees for holders of tickets if an airline ceases to fly, with me and other sources, in her column this week in the Los Angeles Times (free registration and cookie acceptance required), reprinted in the Minneapolis Star-Tribune and in a shorter version in Long Island and New York City in Newsday .

"Don't believe anything just because you read it on the Internet. Anyone can say anything on the Internet, and they do. The Internet is the most effective medium in history for the rapid global propagation of rumor, myth, and false information." (From The Practical Nomad Guide to the Online Travel Marketplace, 2001)
