POV[edit]

Removed the following information from main article, which seems POVish to me. If these facts can be based on solid facts, a customer service section is warranted, but without that, it seems like an attack.--Cabiria 14:35, 31 July 2006 (UTC)

The service hotlines both in Copenhagen and in Stockholm are chronically undermanned. It is almost impossible to get through. Cancelled flights are shown as not cancelled on the sterling.dk website, in order to simulate top performance. Replacement flights for cancelled flights are provided with great delay. Quick help for sick passengers nonexistent. (From IP 85.226.136.108)

What really happened.....[edit]

 Example of a Ponzi?
  1. A buys airline X for 5 billion wholly financed by the bank of A's friend B.
  2. B buys airline X from A for 10 billion, pledging shares in A as security for a 10 billion loan from the bank of B’s friend A.
  3. A repays 5 billion loan leaving own capital of 5 billion on the books.
  4. And on and on it goes, with every player recording increased own capital by the billions at each merry go round.

Is this not what really happened? I have not the proper sources, but someone must have heard of this. WjtWeston (talk) 22:37, 3 November 2010 (UTC)

Incomplete[edit]

This article shoul'd be named "Sterling Airways", a danish charter airline company 1965-1992 approx. After bankruptcy, some of it's former captains formed the new "Sterling Airlines" already in the early 90's. Then it grew and in 2005 the icelanders bougth it and went bankruptcy a few years after. Soon thereafter "Cimber Air" (from Sonderborg) took over large parts of the fleet. It is now known as "Cimber Sterling". Old "Sterling Airlines" used a midzise fleet of Caravelle III. In the 80's they bought 3 Boeing 727, but several Caravelle were still in use in the early 90's. "Sterling Airways" were one of three charter airlines at Kastrup airport, Copenhagen. They competed with "Maersk Air" (Mærsk Air) and "Conair". Until the 90's allmost all regular flight traffic in Europe were runned by national air companies like SAS (Scandinavia), British Airways, Air France, Lufthansa (Germany), KLM (Netherlands), Iberia (Spain), Al Italia, Sabena (Belgium) etc. But on charter traffic competition was alouded in several countries, among them Denmark. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 83.249.32.97 (talk) 00:25, 6 October 2011 (UTC)
