I actually think we could see a fairly decent recovery once things settle down again. I still think we'll see a high number of unemployed but I suspect the majority of those will be from the hospitality industry such as pubs and restaurants.

Looks as if things could be happening quite quickly according to the news this morning in the airline, restaurant and pub industry

Yes
With news today of yet more aviation redundancies - Jet2 and Swissport - and mention made elsewhere in F4A that Ryanair's CEO, Michael O'Leary, doesn't expect aviation to fully recover until 2023, there must be growing fears that more airlines and indeed some airports might not be able to survive a long-term major slowdown.

Swissport intends axing over 4,000 employees which is around 50% of its staff. The company is calling for an aviation strategy from the government with unions expressing similar sentiments.


If many airlines and airports - perhaps most, perhaps all - find themselves continuing to haemorrhage money over the next 2-3 years because of a dilatory recovery from the virus effects can any government strategy ensure the continuance of them all? I wonder how.

I doubt it, unfortunately.
