The collapse of Spanair, Spain's fourth biggest airline, has stranded more than 20,000 people in Europe and Africa.
As Spanair filed for bankruptcy after grounding its fleet on Friday, passengers tried to find alternative flights. Other airlines have stepped in to help.
But for 4,000 or so direct and indirect Spanair workers, long-term misery looms. They face joining the ranks of Spain's more than five million jobless.
