Frontier Airlines filed for bankruptcy but will continue operations.  Aloha, ATA, and Skybus filed for bankruptcy and completely shutdown in recent weeks.  American Airlines and other carriers with MD-80 aircraft have canceled many of their flights for inspections and maintenance.  You know, the inspections and maintenance that they should have been doing all along.

With all of these canceled flights, you would think passengers would brush up on the refund rules, particularly this one: "Passengers whose schedules are significantly affected by cancellations — such as when the only available alternate flight involves flying on a different day or includes an unplanned stopover — are eligible for a refund in lieu of a later flight."  People just need to learn how to stand their ground and demand refunds instead of being herded like sheep.
