Even following its trip to airline heaven, Skybus continues to make plenty of claims even though they don’t really have a business. A former Skybus financial official—who later acted as a trustee during the liquidation—seemed proud that Skybus was one of the first airlines to charge a checked baggage fee. As he sees it, Skybus was a trendsetter, because now pretty much everyone does it—and their fee was only $5.
There’s been past rumors about a rebirth of the airline—or at least something similar—but we’re thinking that the idea is long gone. We hope you rest in peace, Skybus—along with your orange butterflies and advertisement-covered airplanes.
