Mr.Corona is a saving grace for the carrier because just few months ago, the carrier financial position was very bad and it continues being the case. After Mr. Corona dies away carriers like ET and WB who were dominating and giving the carrier headache will come back more aggressively especially WB now that it looks QR will be buying 49% stake of it.

So like i started, i wish you all the best BUT don't be too naive thinking things will happen as soon as yesterday. It will be a very long long wait with the hopes that they wouldn't cancel the program last minute as it has happen in the past when guys were about to leave for SA!
When is it they cancelled? I remember in 2013 they introduced the degree requirement which cut out form 4 leavers like had been the case the preceding years.
