Global Aviation Crisis in progress!!!
#1
As we know, this global crisis has caused massive issues across aviation.

My local airport is the UK's 3rd busiest airport but currently has 10 flights a day and is closed to pax aircraft at 15.35 daily.

But Ryanair announced this today:

IAG said this at the beginning of the week:
https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-52462660

But on the plus side, Wizz Air UK resumes flights from Luton today
https://www.standard.co.uk/lifestyle/tra...29176.html

food for thought: what happens to Norweigan?!?!?!?!?

I don't think Norwegian will be existing for long as they have been in trouble financially long before the pandemic and are now just at the end of the line for anyone to consider saving them. Norwegian has lost itself in expansions which were ridiculous. Building up subsidiaries in several different countries, flying in South and North America while still not having sound plans for Europe. Genius.

In general I hope this will clear up industries (not just aviation) from unncessary participants which do not contribute to anything.

I think the question is, should Norwegian have accepted BA's final offer to buy it??

Wow, we're both from near Manchester, It's definitely worrying for everyone looking for a career in aviation, however, Reuters has speculated that airlines will most likely begin recruiting pilots in 2-3 year due to a retiring workforce.
Undoubtedly, the weaker players in aviation, like Norwegian / Virgin Australia / Compass are going to either face administration, or just barely survive.
Interesting too, which nations are providing aid for the struggling Industry (Don't want to get political, but Richard Branson could've maybe helped a bit more, a bit earlier.)

good to hear that you've got something to look forward to though.
