Easy way to get people flying again = have individual clear plastic head helmets (sort of like space-suit helmets) that each person wears, and it has fresh air pumped into it from the outside (via a small tube that comes down from the ceiling of the cabin) so that there is no risk of breathing in someone else's breath that might contain virus particles. This would work on short flights where there is no need to use the bathroom or to eat any dinner.

Nothing much to do with this vid directly, but I did see the very last Qantas 747 leave Australia for the final time, drawing a Qantas Kangaroo in the sky with their flight path bound for LA, then Mojave. It certainly shows how the virus has impacted aviation, forcing them to bring future retirements forward drastically

I would take the CCP's "miraculous" COVID recovery numbers with a huge grain of salt. It's more likely that China has tried to suppress the real numbers and try to continue as though nothing is wrong. They need to do this b/c they have a huge cash flow problem right now with investors being wary of their markets. Let's also be honest, the CCP could care less for the safety of their constituents and more for their bottom line while their undesirables suffer.

Many A380s are getting stored or retired earlier than expected. Kinda sad, but not surprising. Quad jets are always the first to suffer when passenger numbers go down. Also, WN is pushing into major airlines hubs like Miami, Houston-Bush, and even O'Hare. And United is also looking to go back to JFK.

I recently had a chance to ask the COO of Southwest about the PHX to Cabo flights. He told me that Southwest plans to keep the PHX to Cabo flights going even after COVID-19, and as you have deduced correctly, they are adding destinations to where leisure travelers go such as Denver, Palm Springs, etc. (but I assume that's only if the demand is still there).

I think the executive that came up with the idea of playing chicken with the US government needs a raise. Although it sucks that routes are being closed and leading to people losing jobs and a whole host of other problems, from a strictly profit point of view this is quite brilliant. Ain't nothing like big companies spreading out business over all the states in order to push the government to bend to their will.

Great video! Can't wait for a Wendover Productions to make a video about herd mentality when it comes to mass panicking and fear based, corporate-owned news network coverage. COVID-19 was the media and like a 13 year old boy would yell, "FIRE" in a dark and packed concert hall....sure there was a fire but it was backstage and some people got badly burnt, a few died, but most recovered. However, most people died from getting trampled by fellow concertgoers trying to make an exit (i.e. mental health issues, suicide, substance abuse, domestic violence, lost jobs, broken unemployment systems, and the upcoming foreclosures and other credit defaults). You're still an selfish asshole if you think that the coverage of the fire backstage was too excessive so please hold off on that idea until mid-2021, at least. People need time to come to their senses, the stars predict that after November 3rd the groundhog might show his shadow.

"China's airlines, along with New Zealand's, Australia's and all the other countries that have successfully curbed the virus demonstrate the economic crisis cannot begin until the health public health crisis does"... Mate what an utter load of rubbish that statement is. Australia's aviation industry is in tatters. 1000s out of work, 1 major carrier liquidated, another reduced to 1/4 of its former size, and no end in sight despite having "curbed the virus", and our friends in NZ aren't faring any better, with virgin NZ gone, and Air NZ largely grounded... Your videos are generally great, but that statement was WAY off, and misleading to those who might be watching elsewhere thinking that we have some kind of recovery going on.
