for some reason this doesn't surprise me.

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — After some 250 travelers were stranded Christmas Day, discount airline Skybus has canceled more flights out of Columbus, where the company is based.
Flights to Fort Lauderdale, and Bellingham, Wash., were scrubbed Wednesday morning.

The problems began a day earlier when a Skybus plane that flies to multiple cities each day was found to have a mechanical problem.

That triggered a chain of Christmas cancellations, sending customers scrambling to make alternative travel arrangements.

Skybus began flying in May. It said last week that it lost $16 million dollars from July through September
