I think you are overestimating the strength of the Condor brand overseas. It is still a largely unknown brand in the US that primarily targets European (German) POS.
I remember at least one person on this forum calling for Thomas Cook Airlines to be rebranded Condor. How many people in the UK besides aviation enthusiasts, employees or folk who visit Germany/other destinations Condor serves and are observant at airports have heard of Condor compared to Thomas Cook?
That scenario is academic though given what happened last year.
As for Condor's future, given all that's gone on and how this summer season is probably a write-off, I am fearful for their future. It mustn't be nice for employees to be facing an uncertain future again for the second time in 7 months.
