easyJet grounded all planes until further notice, Logan air (who bought up most of the Flybe routes here in the uk) expecting to do the same.

Loganair apparently already saying they will be back to UKG for a further bailout beyond what has already been announced by the Chancellor. If Flybe is anything to go by, they may be SOL.

Yes unless the "Scottish connection" comes into play!

Loganair has a very unusual business model such that IMO more government money is more likely in the short term, than for any other other British airline, and as a niche player Loganair will need a lot less money to stay afloat than the likes of Easyjet and Virgin.

Antonov An-124 AH-124-100 operated by Volga-Dnepr Airlines has been parked up at the airport here for a few days, and took off yesterday for Anchorage. It kicked up so much dust at take-off that it was reported to the Fire Department as a wild fire. It is a private charter and the cargo is unknown.

It's a big plane, and so huge up close. A company I worked for at one point had a one off ground handling contract for one of these flights, no idea what we were helping load, but damn watching it take off to leave was a sight to see, closer and closer to the end, then finally nose lifts off, and up it slowly went, but man did it use a lot of runway.

Wonder how much longer Cathay can hold on.

One day this week they didn't even carry 600 passengers.

They are going down to just 2 flights per week to 4 destinations, Los Angeles, Vancouver, London and Sydney.

Volga-Dneper Airlines is a contractor to both the USAAF and NATO, and reported to be involved in "humanitarian and emergency services."

Flightaware shows the An-124 leaving Vladivostock for Narita International (Tokyo), and then going to Reno via Anchorage. Maybe the cargo is equipment shipped from Japan to the Tesla / Panasonic gigafactory. At the same time, Panasonic are suspending battery production due to COVID-19.

I remember one coming in during my Heathrow days. I wanted some good pics on departure so I got nice and close to the point where I thought he’d rotate. The thing took off empty and passed me at about 200 feet LOL.

They could have gone to single ops 2 weeks ago. Last week they were running at 15% capacity. Probably even less now. Terminals 3 and 4 are also closing, although to be honest, not really surprising any more.

Lufthansa is making some changes.

"At Lufthansa, six Airbus A380s and seven A340-600s as well as five Boeing 747-400s will be permanently decommissioned. "

The 6 A380's were originally going to leave in 2022.

  • SkyWest: 11.8 months of implied cash on hand*
  • Allegiant: 10.6 months
  • Southwest: 9.4 months
  • Spirit: 8.8 months
  • JetBlue: 8.7 months
  • Alaska: 6.6 months
  • Mesa: 6.3 months
  • Delta: 6.2 months
  • United: 5.7 months
  • American: 4.8 months
* = Raymond James calculated “implied months of cash on hand” by analyzing each carriers’ cash and credit reserves, and estimated cash burn. The calculations do not include any possible government funds from the CARES Act...



Interesting break down from one analyst, looks like AA might be most at risk.

AA would take 34.2 years to repay their outstanding debt obligations if they devoted their ENTIRE $1.2 billion operating income for 2019 to debt repayment only.

By comparison, Delta would be about 6.3 years to repay outstanding obligations ($4.6 Billion revenue), and Southwest about 13.9 years ($2.2 Billion revenue).

Things really don't look good for AA.

(All figures from Annual Reports)
