    Its always sad to see Airlines go, but it looks like this was in the pipeline.

    Reading this part of the article it looks like the crew's may have had an idea what was going to happen.

    "Spanair's demise can eventually hugely benefit its principal Barcelona based rival, Iberia's low cost affiliate Vueling, also an Airbus A320 operator. Reportedly some Vueling pilots have been taking already courses during the last months to be certified for flying aircraft equipped with the same engines of the Spanair fleet, which might suggest Vueling's preparedness to take over quickly some of Spanair's capacity and routes."
