Latvian PM pushes for merger of airBaltic, Estonian Air

So what was the point of ending communism if you are going to return to a state ownership anyway. It maybe true that together they would have more moolah to get fuel efficient planes and probably fly longer routes, but on a long term would it be profitable. Reply to the comment answer

From the article:

"Tero Taskila, CEO of Estonian Air, said that if both governments are shareholders of a joint airline, neither would be prepared to close any existing connections that they consider important for their respective countries although such an airline would have to do it if it wanted to be profitable."

Did Tero forget that Estonian Air has cancelled the route to London? Surely the government wants a direct flight on the national carrier to a city of that prominence. Reply to the comment answer

Oh, let's merge 2 bankrupt inefficient airlines and make ONE bankrupt inefficient airline but based in 2 ineffective and unwanted destinations.

It didn't work for Strasbourg SXB or Basel where there is lots of money, so of course it HAS to work in subsidised ex soviet EU countries. Reply to the comment answer

Now now. It can work. If it will be largely state owned than they will find way to get some euros from the generous teutons and frenchmen. Just ask the Greeks or Irish.

Air Baltic is currently the WORST airline in the EU.

Such a shame that good companies like Malev should be allowed to go bust when AB should have had the chop years ago.

They don't honour any of the fundamental tenets of the EU passenger charter, don't respect their staff, and are almost impossible to get compensation from in court.

Such airlines STINK.

When is it going to end?
~Air Baltic let it go under [11.09.2012, 00:55]
Isn't it state owned. Hilarious situation here is that Latvian state would rather bail out a loser airliner than help its citizens get a better health care and living conditions.
~it wont go [11.09.2012, 17:29]
Dont be ridiculous, AirBaltic is pretty good company. Very good service.
~rrr [11.09.2012, 21:21]
Right, their services are so good that flights are canceled ad hoc upon arrival in Riga, supposedly of a malfunctioning jet engine.

This happened to my parents two weeks ago, and the reason of technical defects is commonly used in order to avoid EU-provision 261/2004, where they should have been given 250 EUR for non-transportation (the actual reason is typically due to overbooking on high frequented flights).

Instead, all they got to wait for half a day for a spare flight, was a piece of cake in size of a cookie. Other airlines I know, provide a better service and do have instant action plans, at least at their headquartered home airport.

For our flight they used the weather.
(An Illegal defence as the CAA ruled)

They need suing for every last cent that can be wrung out of them in court.

It's the only way they learn they are flying in the EU not in Zimbabwe. Reply to the comment answer
~don't forget the weather [12.09.2012, 10:50]
Yes, yes, excuses as an act of nature beyond control.

Maybe next time it's the Lord who prevented them from departure, due to closed airspace, as an act of God.

It's a strict Catholic country, so you never know...

Instead of moaning and groaning all the time, why don't you two punters take your own advice and sue them yourselves? Maybe esti=NO's wife can take time off from her lawsuit against the Estonian government to help you. Reply to the comment answer

Instead of neglect all the time, why not improve customer dedication and services, but if that should require trial lawyers, then this says a lot about the internal orgianization of such an enterprize.
