Angry Year Zero? Now what??

OK, Guvnor and his fellow grave dancers get their way and the major airlines of the western world fold (he'll be ever so happy to be able to say 'I told you so!').

Right then...This is Year Zero. What happens next?

Does mankind forsake the skys forever as a means of transport?

Maybe RyanAir becomes the worlds only mega airline then?

BA, VS, SN, EI, IB, etc etc...all dead as dodo's. Maybe even United/American/USAir too.

What replaces them...assuming anthing ever does!
And who pays for it?
Who comes up with the readies to fund alarmingly expensive aircraft, and pay war insurance rates? Only to see them fly around half empty with 'low fare paying' lemmings prepared to give it a go and hope they aren't Bin Ladened en-route to Majorca for a dirty weekend.

The doom saying glee with which TheGuvnor hypes his predictions are laced with his crocodile tears and the phone number of the Samaritans! Hah! What a prat.

So let's hear it BigBoy. Let's see you take your prediction a few steps further and tell us how people will get around in the future, because I for one don't think you have a balls notion about what you're on at.
