It's bad for the environment, but the only practical way to get to large swathes of the world.
Also some councils like mine are struggling due to a lack of aviation income.

That 'gladness' meant my dad being out of a job.

But cheers for the reality check mate, optimistic as ever

If anything this means aerospace development will be delayed, but in the coming years commercial aviation will bounce back maybe not in 12 months but over time.

But the lack of spare operating capital is less money that gets back to Boeing, RR, Airbus etc, ultimately these companies fund the majority of the R&D in terms of reducing emissions, e-fuels, reduce engine parasitic losses and reduced drag are all that can be done to reduce emissions but doing this requires lots of money. This could ultimately delay next generation of aircraft with improved efficiency.

So you take exception to planes polluting but using a car and ferry to pollute is totally cool? Very droll.

Less flying is a good thing, but this may be tempered by where there are fewer flights, and also that Ryanair may have a larger share of the market. I'd hope it would mean less flying out of Heathrow, but that seems not to be the case.

It's also one of the biggest earners for the UK.

Driving a car to Italy causes more pollution per person than flying there.

More realistically a few million.

They’ll have to look at other employment options like retraining in hairdressing etc.
