All is going wrong for SkyEurope. Crippled by debt, it now faces the wrath of its own employees, "loyal till now,“ writes Czech daily MF DNES. Disgruntled creditors are now part of the mix, several of whom have published small ads in the Czech and Slovak press in order to round up enough creditors to launch a suit against the company. "It is not our intention not to pay, we are looking for money,“ insists SkyEurope chief Jason Bitter in a conversation with the DNES. That said - "In case of bankruptcy, SkyEurope will not be able to reimburse pre-paid tickets.“ Which account for €32m in the last six months.
