Those of us in the industry need to leave our jobs now and find something else. Either that, or find another way out (I'm choosing the latter I think).
Naw, just save money now. If the industry implodes, expect some government assistance. There's usually some propping up happening when a whole industry implodes vs a single company closing up shop due to competition. We need the airline industry for things to return to normal once we have the... problem... resolved.
Like I said, sometimes pessimism is the best way of protecting yourself, because you're prepared. Just prepare now in case something bad happens. We don't know how bad things will actually get at the moment.
If this thing is going to kill me eventually why not quicken the process.
Why would it kill you? If that year is your birth year there's an astronomically small chance of that happening. Also economic pain that everyone is collectively having to go through is also not that bad. I felt like a champ getting a middle income job in the middle of the great recession. Because in comparison to everyone else I did well.
