Come on people.

Jetsgo was not a true LCC and its demise was predictable. It was dumping seat inventory into the marketplace creating fares that were hurting WestJet. Those Jetsgo fares were not sustainable and were not financially realistic.

Hence their demise will bring back some rationality to the marketplace and all other players will benefit.

Jetsgo hurt the consumer by creating false expectations as to fares. No one can make money at those unrealictic fares.

It is Darwin all over. Survival of the fittest.

While I feel for the people who are stranded and who will lose money, I am happy that sanity has returned to the marketplace.
