The executives will walk away with huge bonuses while workers are left empty. Thanks a lot Parts. Only solution is to sell it to some skillful Germans who can still turn it to profit. Reply to the comment answer

"sell it to some skillful Germans who can still turn it to profit"

Don't be so sure!

German wings makes a MASSIVE loss, and Air Berlin is in deep sh..t!
Forget Lauda/Austrian.

Who does that leave?

NO-ONE, and NO-ONE want to invest in some broke airline with a tiny population in a place no-one can remember where it is even. Reply to the comment answer

Lauda is a sport star. He is not the first sport star to mess up in finances and he wont be the last one either.

What are you on about?
You spout shit about something you have not a clue about.

Lauda air was the perfect example of an excellent well run airline.

Niki is also a commercial pilot himself.

(Airline Ceased Ops 01-07-2012)

It became a wholly owned subsidiary of Austrian Airlines in December 2000

I also happened to be bigger than all the airlines of the Baltic states combined and made plenty of profits, which not a single one of the various ex-soviet eastern EU airlines has ever done!

Better know your facts..

Lauda was an excellent businessman and after surviving his nr death, 70s F1 accident + making a come-back, has probably more guts than all Estonian executive management combined.

'Better know your facts..' Maybe you should follow your own advice. EA made a profit in 2003. I know that was 10 years ago but you did say that 'which not a single one of the various ex-soviet eastern EU airlines has ever done!'

And just because he said so. A lot of the guys had fluke back than. Those F1 cars were very dangerous to drive back than. I never said that he lacked courage when it came to motor racing.

So we are now comparing ex-soviet state airliners. ha ha ha. Hey propaganda guy which would you like to compare EA to. By the way I am pretty sure Azerbaijan Airlines have done more profit than insignificant small EA. If you want to compare it by the size of population, than sure, EA has done better than any airliner from Moldova and Armenia, but really. Those two have become the standard for Estonians to measure "post soviet success".

You are obviously getting desperate.
When did Estonia join the EU...?

Cmon.
Which year?
And which year would therefore make it illegal to SUBSIDISE their airline, as they were doing recklessly before?

I mean ANY country or company can turn a profit when it's being subsidised, even the BBC can!
