We can see the repatriation flights boosting the numbers at FRA, whereas MUC remains only marginally larger than TXL (and even smaller than TXL + SXF).

Cargo split by airport:

CGN 64.405 (-1.3%)
HHN 16.848 (+52.8%)
MUC 5.018 (-82.5%)

As with the passenger numbers, FRA remains relatively strong whereas MUC - reliant on belly cargo - drops to insignificance. DHL's hub at Leipzig even sees some growth.

British Airways is in a bitter standoff with unions over sweeping proposals to restructure its business. Trade union Unite, which represents cabin crew and check-in staff, claims BA wants to fire virtually its entire workforce before re-employing most of them on inferior terms and conditions. It is a charge BA vehemently denies.

After deferring 737MAX deliveries (see the 737MAX thread for further details), TUI's Tuifly is cutting their fleet by 50% and several employees will be laid off. https://www.finanzen.net/nachricht/akti ... an-8943927 [German]
The current fleet consists of 39 737s. Several jets (up to 7) were wetleased to Eurowings last year, these contracts will be discontinued. Flying for other tourism companies will also be reduced. The planned long-haul services to the carribean are deferred indefinitely but short-haul flights will be resumed by June 17. This does not directly affect other airlines of the TUI group that already operated long-haul flights pre-COVID, e. g. Neos or Corsair. Each airline is evaluated independently. However, TUI is looking for further assistance on top of the 1.8 billion € bailout they received earlier this year.

That graph is super misleading it had like a logarithmic scale on the Y, and he drew a linear trend on it. Thats not how it works.

Here is a graph with a normal Y axis.

MPs slam BA and parent company IAG for their calculated attempt to take advantage of the pandemic to cut 12,000 jobs and to downgrade the terms and conditions of approximately 35,000 employees. The chair of the House of Commons Transport Committee said: “The impact of coronavirus may sadly mean that the loss of some jobs in the aviation sector is justified. The behaviour of British Airways and its parent company, IAG, is not. It falls well below the standards expected from any employer, especially in light of the scale of taxpayer subsidy."
