You have to factor in that even if load factors do look encouraging there are still far fewer daily rotations than pre Covid times.

I am sure long haul are making more money from cargo than pax.

UK media ranting about numbers of flights from India means nothing if the flights were cargo only, or minimal pax.

Sad sad times, and the early end of a great career for too many of us.

Totally agree. Having been on a few flights lately the load factors were absolutely dismal. The UK media blaming all of climate change and every variant on the travel industry is absolutely crippling the recovery.

It is still some very dark days ahead for the industry in my opinion if furlough ends and this current pace is maintained. God help us all in winter '21.

And when we are all back to 'normal', be it old or new, the cry will go up from management, "Loads are up but yields are down so we won't be reviewing salaries this year".

I did 10 legs as a SLF in the last 6 months. Seen anything from cca 25% (domestic flight within Italy) to full house MXP - FUE FUE - MXP (with EZ)
And zero service on 4 hours flight - (EZ) to bananabreads and drinks on 1 hour flight - (KLM)
