The world will be watching China. Had the virus almost eliminated, opened borders and foreign travel brought it back. Which county will be next to take that gamble? I suspect the delays in doing so, will be painful for airlines and support industries? You then have a monumental task of convincing the public that it is safe to take a flight or holiday. Sensationalist journalism only adds flames to the fire. One thing for is certain, a quick fix is unlikely to assist the plight of our industry and many, many others.

I do see scope for air freight, as Cathay used their fleet for.

Antalya flights/holidays too? Turkey still accepting flights AFAIK or will Jet2 suspend those too to make it a full house?

But the UK government has told no-one to go abroad.

Within 7 days, I imagine the Turkish Govt will close its borders to everyone unless they have a Turkish passport or residency paperwork

I would not visit Turkey any time soon. Their President Erdogan has claimed that Turkic peopleís cannot catch the virus. It was not until a week ago he also claimed that Turkey would not get the virus as it had installed temperature sensors for arriving passengers at Istanbul airport and could catch those with the virus, despite the fact that all nations surrounding Turkey had reported the virus. Turkey will be the next epicentre for the virus outbreak as they are way behind other nations and have tried to sweep it under the carpet.

£1.5 billion on the Dart Group balance sheet.
Should tide the airline/holiday branches for a few months.

Have you seen the steps they are taking, right down to spraying the streets, closing bars etc? Bet more being done there than here.

Turkey has 670 cases, up 311 in a day, 9 deaths, of which 5 were within the last 24 hours.

I see that G-LSAN is also routing MAN-NWI, has been circling and gradually descending over NWI for a while but seems to be heading in to land now. I'm guessing probably storage or maintenance as it's one of the "younger" 757s (25yrs).

Very much doubt even the most cash rich of airlines would be splashing the cash on a paintjob at this particular point in time.

If it’s it tendered part paid and booked the cancellation fees would outweigh any benefit.Simply get it done and give a few people a few more days of fully paid work don’t you think ?

And on that basis, it's curious that probably the busiest a/c in the fleet just now is the new A.321 G-HLYF. As has been pointed out, things aren't always straight-forward.

if being done internally yes. But all companies at present are reducing expenditures to external companies. As in to zero. Unless absolutely necessary.

And as to contractual payments all bets are off at present. What are the paint company going to do? Sue the airline for none payment? The only way I can see a paint input going ahead is if its already been paid for in advance which is doubtful.
