The industry is in dire straits. I wonder who will survive this if/when it ends. Southwest might be the only airline left standing. Imagine that.

Sad news particularly as Avianca is the 2nd largest airline.

I've flown on Avianca a few times and the aircraft clean and relatively new with good service.

I knew KLM was the oldest airline but I didn't know Avianca was the second oldest.

Avianca been around for a while. Really saddening to see these giants falter.

Must've lost my mind.... I meant that Avianca is the second oldest airline the world.

However the airline is likely to be bailed out by the Colombian government as it is the flag carrier and has extensive ties to the government and ruling elite.
