Post Inefficient Flying-businessmen

First and Business classes recorded a fall of 36 p.c. on BA airplanes.

There is only 2 possibilities :
- Businessmen and other big managers stopped to make business. Then the situation is catastrophic because many firms will have big difficulties....

- Businessmen and other big managers continue to make business like before. Then they were travelling for nothing and they were inefficient because they wasted a lot of time in the air....

Personally I think the second solution is the right one. A lot of businessmen are/were travelling for prestige and because you are a very important person if you need to go to Tokyo and then New York few days after....

....but I'm an aviation fanatic and I hope they will resume travels for nothing

No, what has happened is that everyone has downgraded. Therefore, someone previously flying F will be flying J; someone flying J will be in Y and those in Y will be flying less.

It's called cutting costs.

And perhaps (me included)people are first looking at Ryanair, easyjet et al and comparing the cost with BA and deciding it really isn't worth paying three times as much for the very little extra you get.
