I was looking through pics on the site, and came up on this photo.

Now a lot of questions are running through my mind. If an aircraft like this gets damaged, what happens?
1. Where does the airline get another aircraft to cover for its route?
2. What happens to all the passengers who planned to take that flight?
3. How does it affect the rest of the airlines routes and schedules?
4. How long does it take to fix?
What interests me the most is how an airline deals with this in their system, and if they have a method in place to deal with such a situation. Thanks a bunch!
