and as such all the eggs were in 1 basket.
I hope after the dust settles, this does not come back to bite them!

I hope to god that the deal for the airport goes through at some point and there is some stability about the place, because a you
rightly say, it is a fantastic aerodrome.
seems odd that everyone is convinced the CAF business was poached when it appeared to happen as a pandemic gripped the mainland UK. Letís not forget the initial missions were booked into PIK and allegedly switched last minute due to an issue out with the airports control. Hotels I believe? Only a handful remain open locally still to this day.

As some others have suggested there is welcome business come the other way in the form of the C40ís and Qatar Emiri C17 albeit we need more of it. Proof there is life in the old dog yet.

Whilst the Canadian stuff is a sore loss during this mess there is an argument to suggest it may only be temporary and sporadic. Letís hope it returns.

Hopeful also that when passenger traffic does return the airport may be in a position to offer a better cost saving deal to potential airlines who have been hit hard during the shut down.

interesting months ahead for the industry as a whole.
