I.e. those who are envisaging recovery in 2021/22 rather than those out at 2024/25. Whizz air mentioned above is a good example. Those who give up slots expecting to pick them up again in a few years no problem may well rue the day when they try to get back into legacy hubs. Also those purchasing aircraft for their long term fleet development-has there ever been a better time? Think VN etc who are still ploughing on (all be it a state owned airline).

Lease rates are down, slots are available and you can get a whole fleet of almost any aircraft type you want. A lot of experienced pilots and cabin crew and other staff are also available. Those with deep pockets might see this as a good time to invest if they time it right. New airlines might be able to spring up and grow quickly as the situation is resolved.
