They said similar in the wake of the 2008 recession; business travel wouldn’t recover and more people would holiday from home.

All of these managers and executives love an excuse for a cheeky ‘business’ trip, as soon as they can fly again they will.

As for the masses as soon as they can afford to and think it’s safe enough, they’ll be back in Benidorm and Tenerife.

I hear your sentiments about flying not being cool anymore, but I just don’t think this matters to the silent majority.

I’d be more worried about how this virus will accelerate the devaluation of money and increase the rate of inflation world wide which is what is making us all poorer.
