I trained to be a pilot on 2015-16. While I learned to be a competent pilot, the culture of the industry I found terribly toxic, and not very welcoming to anyone different from what they view as pilot material. Well its starting to look like it was actually a good thing that I didnt make it in this business.

This is the aviation industries Karma for overcharging, over cramping and treating customers like crap. Ofcouse they are being bailed out tho cause the government likes socialism when its for the wealthy companies but not the poor

this might be the best thing that has ever happened to the airline industry as a whole, as it will allow bad structures to collapse and be reborn anew with a new better optimized more efficient and productive industry. Its like quitting, resetting a restarting a videogame once you know what not to do

we don't want excessive air travel its causeing global warming. carbon tax passenger flights, to put up operating costs to make it prohibitively expensivem therefore only essential travel will be made. buisnees meetings need to move to zoom conferencing. average joe doesn't need immediate access to anywhere on the planet its bonkers.

Airlines had it coming. None of them kept their aircraft hygienic ever. Dirty toilets, dirty floors, dirty surfaces. Profit over hygiene was always a major turn off.

Good thing they were able to grow their profits, now they have a load of money saved up and we don't need to bail them out with tax dollars.... Right?
MaskedMageYT Dag siden
Airlines 2019: buying back their own stocks to look good on paper, giving executives multi million dollar bonuses. Airlines 2020: Bail us out with taxpayer money! DONT BAIL OUT BIG COMPANY. IF YOU DO BAIL THEM OUT LET THE GOVERNMENT TAKE EQUITY OF THE COMPANY THAT GETS BAILED OUT. ENOUGH BAILING OUT THE BILLIONAIRES.

Not excited about the prospect of my dollars being used to bailout the aviation industry which has spent so much of their money on stock buybacks in the past few years instead of saving or preparing for a crisis like this. Too big to fail? They've already failed, they're just so deep into the pockets of the government already it doesn't matter.

World has shut down and will stay shut down for months, crashing most people's wallets and well being due to isolation. All of this will be worse than the actual impact of the virus, be it 100.000 deaths or 500.000 deaths. I am lost for words at how fragile and incompetent the modern world is. I hope the next virus is actually dangerous to the survival of the species.
Lol, no one is thinking about the environment? Look how clean the sky is becoming! All you guys think is money&planes....

Not just airlines. The hospitality industry has been devastated. Hotels are literally closed. Not just small ones, large big name hotels. All meeting and events have been canceled until at least June.
