I don’t think you understand what I was trying to emphasise. The current situation is not caused by the withdrawal of subsidies, but by interference. Your views are narrow and the better we get to a free market, the better. My assumptions are based on the worldwide industry where carriers are not allowed to fail, protected air service agreements and sovereign guarantees allowing unhealthy carriers to expanding their fleets where their balance sheets are a sea of red. Where we do agree however, is that APD is another stealth tax, where the process will undoubtedly end up in the same pot as speeding fines…
