  1. The airline sells its flight ticket in cash. So, why can it not pay its suppliers promptly? Arumemi-Ikhide probably cannot separate his personal finances from the company's. So the airline has to shut down - but the man lives comfortably. What a shame - an airline with so much assets and such potential!

  2. You don't blame the airline or its management. Are you not in the country to take note of the economy situation. Increase cost of living and importation of foreign products. Nigeria government should do something about it. Else more and more foreign and local companies will sure fold up.
