property of the airlines, and we are required by laws to comply with the airlines’ orders.

1.  If an airline declares bankruptcy, it is not obligated to carry you or to

        refund tickets issued before the bankruptcy.

2. Travel Agents are not allowed to refund tickets on airlines, which have declared bankruptcy.  Money given to a travel agent immediately becomes the property of the airlines, and we are required by laws to comply with the airlines’ orders.

3. If an airline declares bankruptcy it might continue service, limited service or stop completely.  Other airlines might accept passengers under limited circumstances or may refuse any passengers from the defaulted carrier.

4. Meanwhile there are fine travel insurance plans available for passengers to protect themselves in case of airline bankruptcies.
