Authorities ponder pleas from struggling airlines

Hmm, reminds me of the US years ago bailing out banks, car companies and insurance companies. The rich all hate socialism, except when its for them. Of course countries bailing out dead businesses pay for it from taxes, so of course the bill gets paid later by all the taxpayers.

 

If a company dies and the government considers it in the national interest then nationalize it, no CEO golden parachutes and shareholder bailouts.

Anything, absolutely anything to avoid letting some air out of the hot balloon. Had they allowed many of the banks and companies to fail, back in 2007-2008, the economy might have been far more fundamentally sound right now. It is teetering.

Nearly 9,800 flights to Thailand scheduled for March have been cancelled, representing a loss of three million passengers, Chula said. That's an average just over 300 passengers for each flight??

I wonder how TAT will juggle figures to show in increase - fake news possibly!!

In future all tourists will arrive on cruise ships.

 

BTW. Thai news reporting that Air Asia is suspending operations for 3 months.

People don't want to fly. Some to avoid the virus, others to avoid getting stuck somewhere.

 

The PSC (700 THB intl) is buried in the ticket price, passengers hardly make travel decisions based on this, or to save 350 THB.

 

Passengers don't pay landing fees, parking fees, etc.

 

Repeat: People do not want to fly, I doubt FAs and pilots want to either? No amount of incentives will get people to want to fly. And we're told by the "authorities" (some of them anyway)  that we should stay home and not take advantage of low fares.

 

The ineptitude here is always eye-opening, perhaps never moreso that during crises.

Seem to be less Indians not more. More Russians but usually come with family/girlfriend. Keep themselves to themselves and few problems.
