Who would've thought that having an engine fall off the plane as you're taking off would be bad for business? That's what happened to South African carrier Nationwide Airlines late last year, and although they hit the skies again for a while, losing the engine was the beginning of the end.
As of yesterday, Nationwide Airlines has ceased to operate, another in the long line of airline victims of late. They also blame a 30 percent increase in fuel prices, coupled with the loss of business as a result of their "incident" last year. Nationwide was operating both domestic flights all over South Africa and international flights, including a regular route to London.
At this stage, passengers with Nationwide tickets are still stranded and in the dark as to whether they're going to get any compensation or assistance. But we're getting used to that this spring, aren't we?
