No doubt a lot of airlines with grounded or non-arrived B737MAXs will be looking to use any aircraft returned to leasing companies.
I highly doubt that's the case. Don't jump onboard the tabloid scaremongering.
TCG have bridging loans which are subject to the sale of the airline. For everybody's sake, TCG needs to offload the airline as soon as humanly possible, whether it's for a few million or for a £1.
Well over 25,000 jobs on the line around Europe, not what the economy needs really.
What is the quickest timeline we're looking at and when could we expect changes to the schedules? I highly doubt that even though an asset deal can be closed quicker with the appropriate antitrust approvals in place, they would want to mess with the summer schedule as I guess no one wants to miss out on the summer profits.
