According to CBS 3 Philadelphia, several Philadelphia Eagles fans could miss their game in London, England. The reason? They may have bought tickets from an airplane company, who went out of business.

Dan Abate told the news station that he and several friends bought tickets from Primera Air. However, the company shuttered its doors as a company on October 1st.



Abate said he just found out about the closing last week.

“We went to look for a flight for another friend, who wanted to go, so we checked our airline Primera Air and their website stopped working,” he said.

Abate and his friends are still trying to find answers from the company. With the company closed, they may never find the answers.

“We didn’t get any emails,” he said. “We didn’t get anything. We actually would have had no idea. We would have been driving up to Newark on Thursday not knowing we didn’t have a flight if we didn’t check for a friend.”

A friend of his started a GoFundMe page to help attempt to recoup their losses. Abate said he was out $1,000.

Yet, he was able to get another ticket on Monday. He was also concerned that fellow Eagles fans may be in the same boat with Primera Air.

“It just stinks because there are probably some other people out there that are on this flight that don’t even know that the airline is not even there,” Abate said. “That’s what makes me upset.”
