Another airline left us. After Spanair ceased operations two weeks ago, Malév Hungarian Airlines grounded its entire fleet on February 3, 2012 amid financial difficulties. Sadly, we may never hear again the rythmic “Malév Signal” song from this or other Malév commercials… and instead of seeing those blue-nosed 737s fly around Europe, we’ll see them on the tarmac at Shannon Airport.
I can hardly imagine anything more sad for an aviation fan than losing their national airline. But don’t take my word for it. Read two touching stories from the Airline World blog: R.I.P. Malév – by Szafi and by balint01.
