Same airline... different paint job. No different than what other airlines did when they either went on strike or closed their doors. If they paid by credit card then no problem. If by debit card then big problem. Loads in Europe have been very light and should be able to purchase rescue fare flights, perhaps at lower rates than paid to Flyglobespan. So it can be a win win situation for some.
