Oasis to become a mirage?

Oasis, the Hong Kong-based carrier that took on Cathay Pacific and British Airways on routes to London and Vancouver, is reportedly closing up shop today. It is already well into tomorrow in Hong Kong and the inbound flights appear to still be operating and the outbounds are still scheduled rather than cancelled at this point, but the rumors are running pretty strong that the end has come.

I’m really trying not to focus on all the bad in the airline industry these days, but when that’s all that is out there, it is hard not to…

UPDATE (4.9 8:33a EDT): It is official now. At least Oasis has rumblings of someone wanting to buy their assets to gain a foothold into the Hong Kong airline biz, but who knows if that really means anything at this point.
