I would suggest holding off on that until the questions about getting refunds have all been answered. Once a program is moved into the "Discontinued" forum, the threads are locked.

I agree. But perhaps the forum description or title should be updated?

Thoughts?

Let's just be straight up and say,"This forum will be discontinued once the question of refunds is settled."

There will be many issues relating to this program for a good while and the good advice and experience of fellow FT'rs particularly valuable at this time.

There will also be many people travelling on AB & TB tickets for the next year and while their issues may relate to the operating carrier, it is still a particularly natural thing for those people to come to this forum first.

Please look at how I have edited both the title and description of the forum.

https://www.flyertalk.com/forum/airl...-programs-374/

It's easy for me to edit so please let me know if different words would more articulately represent the current situation.

That’s going to be around Q3 or Q4 of 2018 for some.

In the meantime, the forum is not causing any problems for other posters.

Indeed. If anything it may be somewhat more materially helpful now than before the formal declaration of airline insolvency.
