    And while european airlines collapse, the italian governement wants to put a tax on people who use planes... italian governement is the most useless and so part of its population(commies)

      If you think that's a bad business model, you should see shipping. Constant overcapacity. There's also typically a 7 year cycle where 5 or 6 years are unprofitable and only 1 or 2 years are profitable.

              Thomas Cook "executives" (AKA: criminals) looted 50 MILLION POUNDS from the company in the lead up to its collapse. They called the stolen funds: "bonuses"...how quaint.

                It's good these companies are going bankrupt because less planes means less CO2, so its better for the environment.

                  OK this is a little off topic comment here.

                    how big of a factor is (expensive) unionized air and ground personnel in Europe on the struggling finances of these (former) companies ?

                          so the problem is not the airlines but the debtors. Why don't they structure the pay-back of debt to coincide with high profit months? (pay more when the cash flow is good, and pay near NOTHING during the hard months).

                          it is common knowledge that, since their inception, BANKS have been nothing but trouble. They leave you alone as long as you're making them money, but the MINUTE you don't pay, they STEAL your wealth through foreclosures. Fight the banks, not the operators.

                              "everything is ready to go, everyone knows what to do and how to do it, but the flight can't go because everything is owned by some old white dudes in suits thousands of miles away and they say no" is a big reason capitalism is such bullshit

                                Adria airways has had problems for years now, but only went bankrupt like 2 weeks ago. It wasn't that big of an airline, but it was the only Slovenian airline.

                                  I used to LOVE flying when I was a child then I started to hate it for all the obvious reasons: Long queues, ears pop, crying children ect ect. But then I stopped flying Thomas Cook and everything changed, I LOVE Flying again. No coincidence.

                                            We are seeing the end of European coercion and colonialism. All European nations and their main colonies (USA, Australia, etc) are hurting badly and I strongly doubt here will be a recovery from the next recession-depression.
