Sounds like a nightmare. We only have iPads for the charts so far, dreading the next step.

On the plus side, maybe pink UK gets their fixed rosters back, taken away by J M before Covid hit in the name of "efficiency"?

Surely the moral of the story is tube drivers have got their act together and a strong, united union delivers the goods. Unlike us pilots, who don't get the concept of solidarity.

You should look at some statistics of how often advanced military drones crash. Now imagine the public outcry after just one accident involving passengers in a giant drone.

The comment above is spot on. The truth is: deteriorating flying skills are a result of the race to the bottom of the last 20 years. I get all the comments lamenting this fact and I too used to fly a...

Uhm, why not leave the AP in and turn the heading knob? When you colleague went to the loo you would have had an "all yours mate".

This is the million dollar question indeed. Many who survived the first cull are undoubtedly very worried a second one could still happen, and Varadi will be ruthless, make no mistake about it.

The race to the bottom is reaching a point where safety will become compromised. Aviation remains very safe statistically but the bean counters are playing with fire and morale is at rock-bottom.

I find this argument hard to believe and most alleged proof of this that Iíve seen seems very thin. Without a lockdown hospitals would have been completely overwhelmed.

Sorry, and this is getting off-topic, but the real number as per Financial Times is around 50k. This is with a lockdown. Without it you'd probably be looking at half a million. Your point is?

The problem is the UK government ignored the science initially, relied on dodgy behavioural models, then did a U turn and now the UK is a lot worse off than most other countries.
