This sort of hysterical hand wringing really isn't helping anyone.

I've been pretty consistent in my assertion that the industry will contract by a hell of a lot more than 10-20%. That doesn't change my belief that TUI UK and Jet2 (the corporate entities) will come...

People will still go on holiday. Brits always find the money to get away in the summer. It absolutely will be seen as a priority, as soon as restrictions are lifted. There's also going to be a huge...

I'm basing them on observation and common sense. I actually think that my numbers are still massively optimistic. I'd be very surprised if more than half of currently employed pilots in the UK keep...

Anyone who thinks it's a hysterical reaction has their head firmly in the sand.
easyJet are talking about shrinking by a third: that is 1000+ pilots gone straight away. BA I'd expect to do the same:...

There will be no jobs for ANY pilots, let alone cadets, for the next decade at least. It is beyond belief that people are still even considering training now.

Conservatively, there will shortly be...

Exactly the above. If you're not already qualified (and current, to use an aviation term) in another profession or trade, it is simply fanciful to suggest that you're going to find a job paying even...

I think that the overwhelming sense is that people canít wait to book a holiday as soon as travel is permitted.

A lot of working people didnít really have the money to travel before this crisis but still found a way to! The two week summer holiday is ingrained in the British psyche and I think that is going to...

I actually tend to think that if any company is going to come out of this well it'll be Jet2. People will be going on their two week summer holiday when this is over, whether it be this year or next....

Itís clearly not going to take 18 months for international travel to start again. It will be up and running within a couple of months. The issue is the volume of travel, which isnít going to be...

Absolutely agree. A large number of pilots, myself included, are going to be forced into taking any job going just to pay the bills. It is unlikely that many will have the time or money to commit to...

I don't think anybody is saying none of us will ever fly again. Unfortunately though, many pilots ARE going to lose their jobs, and a very sizeable proportion will never fly again. I don't see any...

I think this will prove to be absolutely spot on. Many of us have done our last ever flights in the past week or so.
There are lots of heads in the sand.

What exactly is unbelievable? Take easyJet for example: they have a relatively young pilot workforce, with no real retirement bubble imminent. There is no reason to suggest that attrition will be...

I'm about as pessimistic as it gets, but even for me your posts just seem like hysterical nonsense. There's no doubt aviation is going to suffer, the industry will contract. However, people will...

Sunak is merely engaging in political posturing. Every other country in Europe is going to support its airlines. The UK is not going to be the odd one out.

Politically it's very difficult for the government to say "Sorry, nothing we can do. Good luck if you catch it."

Quite understandably, nobody wants to make that call, so we're in a situation...

It will not go on for 12-18 months. That may well solve the virus issue, but it would be at the cost of destroying the entire social order. There would be rioting, looting etc. At some point the...
