    Not sure about "Europe's largest" title. Read it somewhere. Flybe tells all passengers not to come to the airport. No flights operating. Ouch. Thread title should have said "due to virus scare" (or, virus worries).

    Correction: Flybe was Europe's largest regional carrier.

    Yup. Then again, if there's a bailout of the UK airlines, maybe they, like Midway, will make a play to come back...

    Do you suppose that Flybe will be the European Regional equivalent to Alitalia? "Just one more loan. That's all we need." (Repeat ad infinitum as long as there is someone in authority who takes the failure of Flybe personally or as a national disgrace.)
