    Well if no one will fly on your aircraft or countries not let you fly anyone but their people. Alas Covid 19 will not be finished in 2 months. That is bad news for all of us.

    Supposedly paycuts coming to those who haven’t been furloughed, to keep it ‘fair’, presume it will be those who keep working lose 20% pay temporarily

    Bit out of date. Loads of airlines will be doing the same in the near future. There is little doubt.

    Media are reporting 12k jobs to go. About 25% of staff, crazy number. See below link to IAG announcement. Strange no mention of jobs going at any of the other subsidaries?


    “ In light of the impact of COVID-19 on current operations and the expectation that the recovery of passenger demand to 2019 levels will take several years, British Airways is formally notifying its trade unions about a proposed restructuring and redundancy programme. The proposals remain subject to consultation but it is likely that they will affect most of British Airways’ employees and may result in the redundancy of up to 12,000 of them.”

    That is just part of it, it fails to mention that remaining employees will be dismissed and then rehired on vastly inferior contracts "zero hour contracts" across all grades and departments unless your on the top table off course����
