I want to love this airline, but with incidents like these, I would be a little unnerved about flying them. Definitely do not use them when time is of the essence on your trip.
Yeh, I’ve been reading news about them. They announced that they’re going to stop NYC-LPL in October, maybe resume next summer. It was originally set to be year-round. American Airlines actually had announced last year that they’d start serving JFK-LPL, but that never happened, so there must be some demand there.
Their JFK aircraft was struck by lightning, delayed 5 days, ready to go back, then some engine trouble. I’ve not read your article yet. Hopefully they’re still doing fine on their Sanford and Hamilton routes (Florida and Ontario).
I know I posted about my kid’s success with them; everything went smoothly with his Glasgow>Sanford trip last fall.
But that was then, and this is now.
Thats interesting. Maybe they are such a small airline that if a couple of jets go unexpectedly out of commission they don’t have enough backup to handle the situation.
I do recall my flight back to the states had to stop at some tiny stateside airport to refuel, but I don’t think it was a major delay.
I debate their long term success because the two flights I was on were both only about 1/2 full.
I take the airline complaints at this site with a grain of salt, because who is happy with airline flights, but it’s pretty clear here that FlyGlobeSpan is in pretty serious shape:
I would consider them OK to fly if you are going with no prepaid accommodation, no set timeline for returning, and if you do not have any further travel planned after landing for at least 5 days.
