Re: Lack of social distancing aboard flights: criminal negligence?

Is this post satire? It depends. Are half a million dead people and the millions more to come satire to you? This thread is great in that if considered a sample of the global population, surprisingly many people seem to share Brazil's Bolsonaro's point of view, proving that humanity is not ready (y...

Re: Will pax only airlines buy more cargo aircraft?

It would be an awful decision. The uptick in cargo demand is only temporary. Once the emergency portion of the pandemic comes to an end, and we have to deal with the effects, cargo too will have significantly less demand than normal.
