Complaints and apprehension reign as news of suspension of its operations by Arik Air gains ground following its inability to fly passengers across Nigeria since the early hours of today (Tuesday, September 13, 2016).
Arik just conveniently suspended an international flight for 2 days, cos of lack of jet fuel. Is this the change you people voted for?

Aero contractor’s has suspended all flights but Arik is still there providing shitty service… oh Nigeria

By the end of 2016, almost all local airlines would have shutdown. Arik has joined the league.

Arik has been poorly managed and pretty much damn useless. I don’t even feel for them.
— MKO (@MobayoO) September 13, 2016
Buhari means curse..he says previous admins did nothing..maybe his wish is coming true. Pls whisper to him in Daura that Arik just shut down

From my experience of ARIK, they were destined to have problems. Even before recession. Poor customer service, terrible time keeping etc….
— Gege (@nigeriasbest) September 13, 2016
Aero. First Nation. Arik. All shutdown in one week. It is well.

As of one month ago, Arik, Aero, and Dana ran flights to Akwa Ibom (daily or weekly). Dana is the only airline left standing.
