Hi DB39,
The 60% figure that I used was that mentioned by OAG earlier today, but as you can see, alm1 explains that, for some, it's even cheaper than that right now. Of course, everyone needs that kind of help right now...
Before I posted I had thought about the existing airlines 'hoovering up the pieces' but wondered if they would have the confidence / cash to be anything other than completely risk averse in the short term.
I wondered if that might provide an opening for a, by comparison, currently cash rich organisation - and that might mean one that is not currently in the airline business - seeing an opportunity, if only in the domestic market to begin with. Time will tell I guess.
