The Swiss government is guaranteeing loans and there is talk of nationalization if things don’t get better according to an interview with Swiss chief Thomas Kluhr in the Schweiz am Wochenende newspaper.

Swiss is looking to lose 1,000 positions over the next two years (at least?). The Lufthansa subsidiary is losing up to CHF2 million per day.

Did't hear of any government shedding employees, or cutting down on cost...

........ yet! So far we are effectively talking of the "here and now", especially in Aviation and maybe trying to second-guess what may happen next year.

Of concern is that what is to come for all national economies in the slightly longer term as that has had little coverage so far. Once the final employment impact is felt across all industries with unemployment benefits up and tax revenues down and, of course, the small question of the recent Govt borrowing to pay for all of this, the next few Budgets everywhere will make for "interesting" reading.

I have seen no figures but, I suspect, our kids will be paying for this for quite a while.....

Maybe because they dont fly airplanes that are currently grounded? What a stupid remark

I don't think it's stupid - there's increasing resentment about the growing chasm between the "haves" in government employ, who enjoy 100% pay, job stability and protected pensions - and the private sector "have-nots" workers, who are being sacrificed at the altar of covid.

I also endorse this one. With most unpopular decisions crippling the private sector being made by people whose livelihoods are in no jeopardy, it's understandable that the majority start getting angry and frustrated with all that.

Any idea if there were any redundancies in the CAA? Or in its German analogue? Or in any other state administration elsewhere in the world? Surely, their services are in somewhat lower demand now due to reduced aviation activity? Just being ironic...

Plenty of well-paid CAA jobs are advertised online today, all temporarily remote. i.e. work from home.

All of them seem reliant upon a significant volume of air traffic.......

It has always been like that in every country. Private vs government jobs have advantages and disadvantages. You should know this really... Risk and reward.
