Never really seen the point of these brand shops at airports, does anybody ever buy anything, not me!! Think it mostly PR they look nice I suppose!!!!!Reading today.......
about all the Airplane services being hit as they are paid directly by the carrier not the airport
Paid on a pay as you go basis. Baggage Handlers and the like!
Then we have catering firms x 2
1 Airplane food caterers
2 Food outlets in the airport.
Also all the other airport shops (Boots Dixons WH Smith, and all the high-end "boutiques"
Massive hit all round ! and redundancies
I suspect when air travel "takes off" again prices will go "sky high"
Apologies (or not) for the puns, and sympathy for all those affected !
I suspect it is the "little people" such as shop assistants bar staff and restaurant staff who will suffer the most !
Maybe their employers will get government support to keep them on (even at lower pay and no bonuses/tips)
It looks really strange out in the wilds of Spain. Driving by on a fairly uninteresting motorway the sight of all the planes makes for interesting conjecture.
Sadly its likely they will....
Wrong to call the A380 a flop as it was/is such a triumph by aeronautical engineers, but it is so sad that it has proven to be, for the airlines at least, the right aircraft but at totally the wrong time!They are also scrapping the Airbus 380s now ..
No body mentioned it was a FLOP in fact it was a great sucess ..the earlier models are less efficient than later versions hence they are the ones being scrapped ..the remainder will fly for years to come just no more new ones being built..Wrong to call the A380 a flop as it was/is such a triumph by aeronautical engineers, but it is so sad that it has proven to be, for the airlines at least, the right aircraft but at totally the wrong time!
The scrapping of these amazing aircraft is one thing which will be costing zillions, but it will also be that international airports throughout the World who have invested enormous amounts into the development of unique, aircraft specific gondolas etc., the mind simply boggles!
