I wonder whether the Edinburgh financial institutions, who were presumably the major users of the LCY services, have told BA that have discovered that online meetings worked perfectly well, saved a lot of money, and allowed their staff to work reasonable hours.
That is going to be one of the biggest challenges for airlines, and hotels that rely upon business customers with big budgets to travel to meetings and to overnight. It is probably a given that on the other side of the Covid-19 crisis there will be fewer face to face business meetings, probably fewer conferences that require overnight stays and cities like London could especially hard hit, as will the airlines, like BA Cityflyer.

For many of the legacy carriers, front end business passengers are crucial to their business model, again especially Cityflyer, who's customers must be predominantly from that sector.
