How do you think the future of airtravel will change after the coronavirus epidemic?

Mon Mar 23, 2020 9:00 pm

How do you think we will be looking back at this in lets say, 4 or 5 years from now? I'm just know what your thoughts are.

Hopefully for the better. With fewer travelers hopefully the airlines will start caring more about service and get rid of ridiculous fees for bags or selecting seats.

The Max is done. Even as recently as December, pilots who had been given runaway MCAS training flunked sim rides (according to Bloomberg). So that’s still an issue (and they were American pilots, haters). There’s going to be a massive financial depression which will not only crush demand but cratered jet fuel prices will undermine the Max’s only advantage, efficiency.

Why do you think this will permanently reduce travel demand? If there is no viral pandemic (or any such worldwide crisis) going on at a given time, people will get back to traveling.

I think that everything will change for the better. Airlines will be more attentive to passengers arriving from abroad. After what is happening now, airlines will learn to prevent or minimize future epidemics.

Any more details regarding that as I do find it interesting? I unfortunately find it headed for the worse.

I do hope that Airports that have international travel do have medical labs and such. They will have to be far more strengthened then they are today, Perhaps doctors with some knowledge of immunology, virology, epidomology may be posted there. As a potential traveler, I would be far more relieved and de-stressed if I know there is medical help around. With possibility of terrorist attacks and now viruses, having medical help nearby would be god-send. Maybe the doctors could have more rights to cancel airports in case they see something like this. We would need some kind of screening similar to what we have for suspicious objects. Travel will always be there, maybe bit less but will be there for sure.

Seismic events like this have a tendency to permanently alter our work and travel habits.

People are getting used to working from home, conference calling, and co-collaborating from a distance. The software has been there for years, but it takes an event like this to increase adoption, and to make people actually use it enough to benefit and become advocates. When all this is over and people have been successfully working from home for three, or maybe even six months at this rate, they are not just going to go jump back into the previous dynamic.

Coupled with the environmental movement, there is the perfect theatre for significant change going forward. The question is, on what scale.
