Eos Airlines shuts down

New York-based premium transatlantic carrier Eos Airlines filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection yesterday and operated its last flights earlier today. The airline flew Boeing 757-200s between New York-JFK and London's Stansted Airport, but had plans to expand to other destinations.

Eos' shutdown was not necessarily expected, but given the current state that the industry's in, it wasn't too surprising, either. MAXjet, another premium transatlantic carrier, stopped flying in December.
