I do wonder whether people like us, with a handle on reality and a grounding in the industry, might perhaps serve a similar function in future, digging out the likes of 7U and his nutty followers??
That's one option for filling our time post Jason, the other would be to start an airline of our own. After all, how hard could it be?

I've no relevant experience, but my delusions suffer less grandeur, I'll handle scheduling.
