ATLANTA - When Eos Airlines launched its first flights in 2005, the startup carrier named for a Greek goddess came with enthusiastic business travelers looking for more space who didn't mind hefty fares for premium service across the Atlantic. <br />
The high-flying luxuries came to an end Sunday as Eos ceased operations after filing for bankruptcy protection, the latest casualty of a credit crunch and a money-losing airline industry that has been hit hard by high fuel prices.<br />
Atlanta-based Delta Air Lines is listed as the holder of the fourth-largest unsecured claim against Eos. <br />
Eos reconfigured Boeing 757s meant for 220 passengers with 48 seats that could extend into a fully flat bed. Flights served wine, champagne, cocktails and gourmet foods. There were individual DVD players, and helicopter rides to the airport were offered to some travelers. <br />
The price for the New York to London flights, which it offered twice a day, ranged from $3,500 to $9,000 round-trip.
