Interesting Frank. Thanks for posting:) I wonder why British Airways isn't on the chart?

Monarch stopped operating on October 2 leaving over 110,000 people stranded. It's not merely in "financial trouble"; it's out of business. I'm surprised to see it listed on this airline chart published TODAY.

Notice the comment which has been added at the bottom:

Poor article: when you write an article about a chart, you should explain the basics of the chart!
1) There are airlines in four different colors on the chart, but I see an explanation only for the yellow color.
2) Different airlines have different size dots. What is the meaning of the sizes? Number of passengers, or market capitalization, or total revenue, or what?
3) The vertical axis, "5y capacity CAGR", explain what that is.

Precisely my comments. I am guessing the red dots (Alialia, Air Berlin and Monarch) are airlines which have already gone bankrupt.

When buying airline tickets well in advance...be careful. If buying trip insurance, confirm the carrier is not excluded.

It's nice to see that my usual airline (easyJet) is still looking good. As the article says, perhaps some consolidation would be a good idea.

CAGR is Compound Annual Growth Rate for the non financial folks.

Still a poorly written article.

I'm confused. Ryanair that canceled how many flights is the best? And Alitalia that i was on last month has "demised"?

Germany's Air Berlin is soon to be bankrupt. Looks like Lufthansa and easyJet will pick up a lot of the planes and staff

They already are, and have cut over half their flights while they work-out their finances.

Air Berlin is no more. It has flown its last flight. Even their website has a good bye message.

Now we just wait while the assets are divyed up to other airlines.
