The death of an airline

After 66 years of continuos flying Hungarian national airlina Malév has stopped operating - the company reported early in the morning on 3rd february, 2012. The bankruptcy of the aviation company considered by many to be a national institution in Hungary resulted in many thousands of people having to look for a new job or deciding to retire. This number rose to a few tens of thousands of people after taking into consideration all the company's suppliers. Most once-Malév workers look back romantically at the days spent flying, and many don't know what they will do on the labour market with their special knowledge.
