Any data to back up any of your claims? You keep denying the facts I'm citing with no evidence but your own beliefs.
The chart is from the OAG, same place where enrilla gets his report.
Agreed, it's going to be a tough couple years, but the aviation industry will recover. I have been reading airline industry reports, and none have indicated a decades long recovery as some on anet are claiming.
You know very well that the OAG schedule does not represent actual flown capacity in the current environment and suggesting as such is disingenuous. You are not providing actual capacity "facts". It's a planned schedule that ends up having numerous cancellations/downgauges due to low loads. If you want to put forward actual flown capacity numbers (I don't have that information and I doubt you do either), I'm prepared to discuss that. Otherwise what you're arguing is pretty meaningless.
Who on ANET is claiming a decades long recovery? I certainly haven't seen that. Seems you're exaggerating to me. I certainly see this taking three maybe four years to grow out of.
How many ways do you want me to slice it up for you?
These are departures, since you say everything is gettting cancelled, as you can see 25% for DTW.
I have shown you departures, I have shown you seats, if you can't understand it I can't help you.....
Literally the person who I was quoting was mentioning a decades long recovery:
International planning has gone from a few weeks, to a few months, to years, to maybe this decade.
That is reality, not speculation.
I'll quote others I've seen in other threads as well if you don't believe me:
I thought this tweet was on point:https://twitter.com/DKThomp/status/1261306105998737408
Miles flown on U.S. airlines didn't surpass their pre-9/11 highs until the spring of 2004: 2.5 years later
Miles flown didn't surpass their pre-Great Recession highs until 2013: ~5 years later
COVID is a combo—a fear of flying multiplied by a recession. Lost decade in play.
This move tells me Delta doesn't believe the capability of the 777 is coming back anytime soon. Meaning years. They are willing to drop young aircraft. Arent a couple of these frames 10 years old?
This virus may have set the aviation industry back a decade or more.
