My flatmate had no less than 6 flights planned with Spanair, and now he lost his money and has to buy all those tickets again. Very frustrating.
Ryainair is more and more present though, especially here in Barcelona after they last year started flying to the main airport of Barcelona and not just Reus (Tarragona) and Girona (Girona). Some newspaper says the competition from Ryanair is actually one of the reasons for the closing of Spanair.
I am sorry for everyone affected by this...
