I really hate to say this, but how much do folk think that some airline managements will be looking at the Covid-19 crisis as an "opportunity" or smokescreen to trim down their staff count?
Either way tough times ahead for everyone affected by the crisis, regardless of what people do in their lives.
British Airways is to ground flights 'like never before' and lay off staff in response to the coronavirus.
In a memo to staff titled "The Survival of British Airways", boss Alex Cruz warned that job cuts could be "short term, perhaps long term".
The airline industry was facing a "crisis of global proportions" that was worse than that caused by the SARS virus or 9/11.
Meanwhile, Ryanair told staff they may be forced to take leave from Monday.
An internal memo to Ryanair staff, seen by the BBC, said crew may be allocated to take unpaid leave due to cancelled flights and schedule changes.
BA boss Mr Cruz said: "We can no longer sustain our current level of employment and jobs would be lost - perhaps for a short term, perhaps longer term."
The airline is in talks with unions but gave no further details about the scale of the likely job losses in the video message transcript seen by the BBC.
The airline boss said that British Airways, which is owned by FTSE 100 company IAG, was suspending routes and parking planes in a way they had "never had to do before".
British Airways would "continue to do our best for customers and offer them as much flexibility as we can", Mr Cruz said in the video.
