Kraft Bankruptcy Directory

Postby 2001kraft » Wed Feb 17, 2016 5:01 am

Hi there.
Recently I noticed a lot of retired people from FlightGear taking up really old or bankrupted concepts. So I'm here to help.
This is the bankruptcy directory, all companies that supposedly went bankrupt and are now waiting for an owner.

• What you do: browse through the list of airlines below. Pick the one you like, and message me either via PM or through Skype (m2001kraft)
• What I do: I make liveries, renders, etc. for you. I design the logos, background history, and if you're really lazy you can even pick up on the previous vibe of the airline and just go with the old flow. Also, if person is willing to give up on imagination completely, I can make a website for them either using Weebly, Wix, or any other website creator that the owner wishes for me to use. Discuss via PM or Skype.

Listings below:

• LuxAir
Super luxurious airline, similar to EOS Airlines. Operated a fleet of Boeing 737-200s, 737-600s, and later 737-700Ws. Had a total of 30 fleet members at time of bankruptcy, each plane with an all-first-class configuration and a 1 by 1 layout. Had 14 routes at time of bankruptcy, 15 at its acme, and was based in New York LaGuardia Airport and Sacramento Executive Airport. Filed bankruptcy in 2008 due to global economic recession. Received great reviews, had no accidents.

• AirBern
Small, CRJ-200-operating Swiss airline based in Bern. The airline offered a 2 by 3 layout in its CRJ-200s, famous for extremely narrow isles and very thin seats. It offered a pay-and-go option which required the customer to pay for everything, from choosing their own seat to in-flight drinks. An episode with a person dying of heart attack after being declined a cup of water because he chose the pay-and-go option had occurred in 1998, fueling the airline's bankruptcy. Had a total of 19 routes at time of closing, 44 at its acme. Had a total of 59 CRJ-200 when it filed for bankruptcy in 1999 due to lack of customers, a repercussion for terrible customer service, poor aircraft maintenance, extremely low staff pay, and dramatically overpriced tickets.

• AeroSentinel
A middle-eastern executive army contractor during the Gulf War of 1991. At first it operated a fleet of Falcon 20s, to transport Iraqi military officials. It was forced into relocating into Jordan, as-well as rebranding after the War on Terror has ended. The company went commercial in 2009, and started off with Bombardier CRJ-900s and Boeing 737-900ERs. The company went bankrupt in 2014 due to poor management, corruption, and pilot strikes for low pay. Customers often filed complains for poor piloting, since most of the personnel was consistent of ex-military persons. At its commercial acme, the company operated 40 routes, and at time of bankruptcy, only 3. It was based out of Amman Civil Airport in Jordan, and in its final year moved to Queen Alia International Airport, as an attempt to improve public rating. At the time of bankruptcy, the company had 11 CRJ-900s and 3 Boeing 737-900ERs.

• Royal European Airlines
Royal European was a gargantuan airline operating Airbus A321s, based out of Zurich, Switzerland. It had an all-business-class fleet and an all-economy-class fleet. The concept worked well until the 2008 global recession, which rid the company of its all-economy-class-fleet, returning the company's focus on all-business-class. The two became two separate entities, with all-business-class becoming QK Aviation, standing for Queens' and Kings' Aviation, and the all-economy-class staying Royal European. QK progressed and merged with Swiss International in 2013, while Royal European stayed afloat for only a year, declaring bankruptcy in 2009. Royal European received mostly-good reviews, and offered in-flight television, free wi-fi, and free drinks on-board for all of its economy customers. The deeply-considering attitude towards its customers played a huge role in the company's bankruptcy, since a lack of customers who were willing to pay for an economy class flight, despite all of the add-ons that Royal European offered, has led to the management deciding to cut prices, almost-completely wiping the company of its profit. This led to management finally letting the company float until it went into negative profits, after which the management decided to declare bankruptcy. At the time of its bankruptcy, Royal European had a fleet of 60 Airbus A321s, in a 3 by 3 layout, and a route count of 43, the acme of the company having 45 routes.

• Fly3.co

• General Air
Small airline based in Dallas Fort-Worth. Operated a fleet of Boeing 737-600s in a 3 by 3 layout, until declaring bankruptcy in 2003 due to three consecutive accidents, one involving 19 dead after a hard landing, the other being a complete hull loss after the pilot aborted take off and rolled into a ditch, killing 30, and the final one, marking the end of the airline, where the aircraft rolled into a terminal at Hartford Bradley after a parking brake malfunction. The airline, at its acme, had 40 routes, and the time of its bankruptcy it had 30. The company received mostly positive reviews, aside from long waiting times at airports and frequent accidents due to negligence in maintenance.
Livery:
Just a white plane with General Air written in front, above the window array. Font: Arial; Color: black. No logo or anything. Decided not to bother with making an image.

DISCLAIMER: all of these are my original ideas and nobody's going to sue you

For that, could you please provide me with background history, fleet, routes, and date of bankruptcy, similar to the format I have in the thread? And a 2D livery would also be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
EDIT: PIA was simply privatized, and not actually declared as bankrupt, so therefore it will not make an appearance here as of yet.
