FlyLAL Lithuanian Airlines Shuts Down

FlyLAL Lithuanian Airlines, Lithuania’s flag carrier, shut down on Sunday after failing to secure additional capital it had expected to receive.  The airline, which employed more than 300 and had 14 aircraft, has filed suit against Air Baltic and Riga’s airport claiming unfair competition.  Luckily (or sadly) enough, I was able to fly Lithuanian on an uneventful 45 minute flight back in 2005.  I was the idiot snapping pictures as we boarded.

If you have tickets on the airline, information about what to do can be found here.
