How about all the taxes and fees that are part of the ticket prices? Those eat massively into the airline’s margins.

Speed train is more appropriate for Europe's scale anyway, we should invest more on it than airplanes.

So they're going bankrupt because they have nobody who knows how to plan ahead? Sounds like they deserve bankruptcy

You should make a video about the logistics of Tim Horton's. They have locations even in the most remote northern settlements. Would be very interesting to see how they supply them, how they can still sell things at an affordable price.

Seems like they knew ahead of time they were going to collapse, so not saying anything til the last minute and stopping flights when people already boarded them seems like a dick move. I am sure they could of canceled a lot of flights further out, and then sold off planes and stuff to fund operations for the more near term flights, to have a more controlled collapse.

It bothers me you spent a significant portion of this video making a socialist pitch, wherein you completely acknowledge the benefits of the government funded flights and dont even have the objectivity to mention whether the dollars spent on those flights are worth it.

Not raising the prices by 200% in summer would help them get more bookings instead if trying to rip off hard working people

If your completion went out of business, wouldn't that get you more customers and you can then increase prices.

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.

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.
