Package holiday company Cosmos has confirmed it has pulled the plug on its planned flights to the US from Thanet's Manston Airport.
The tour giant, which promised to make the Thanet airport a major departure point for flights to the United States, has failed to sell enough seats both in the UK and US.
It is understood the flights to and from Virginia had sold just 600 tickets in the UK - and a mere 200 in the US. That represents just ten per cent of the tickets available for the planned weekly service.
Ed: I thought this might happen - In fact as I was pretty sure it would! Which way Manston now I wonder?
