Danish Lowfare Airline Sterling Goes Bankrupt

(Thanks so OTR Swedish correspondent Marcus for the heads up)

Iceland-owned Danish airline Sterling has gone bankrupt, stranding thousands of passengers across Europe (I feel like it’s actually been a couple of weeks since we’ve seen a bankruptcy.  Well done.)  The carrier had flown to 40 destinations across Europe but struggled with higher costs, etc.  The financial meltdown in Iceland certainly didn’t help, as it had been trying to raise additional capital over the past couple of months.

Unfortunately, if you’ve purchased tickets with them, they’re not refunding the cash – call your credit card company.  SAS says they’ll help get travelers who are stranded back home.
