          Long story short, without all the crap: We're in a global recession, and probably soon Depression. There is no other reason for it. And if you look carefully, you will quickly find out that it affects other companies as well, not only airlines. Get your seatbelts ready. We will not recover easily from that next financial crash.

            Why airlines are going bankrupt.

            Because they overcharge for economy and cram everyone in with very little leg room.

                    Look, I'm not about giving charity to weak businesses. To me the businesses should be let to run on their own, to which other critics would say I'm too laissez faire. If they fail, then they do. Absolute freedom, other than criminally illegal, also is not ideal, as certain practices would have adverse effects in possibly several markets & the economy. Though I'm not so strict, to say giving grants or financial support to businesses that are cultural, but you have be very, very careful with those things.

                    It's so easy to attribute very soft (sometimes stupid) policies with me coz I primarily identify as liberal.

                                                As far as Cook is concerned... I feel you missed a big reason for their downfall. Huge overhead. Whereas most airlines moved to the online environment for ticket sales, Cook had a shitload of brick and mortar locations and agencies. Dinosaur style....

                                                        I actually watched a Thomas Cook plane loaded and taking off on the 13 October 2019 at YVR Vancouver 🤔...

I am looking for the references of the two other flight videos you made "How airlines price tickets" and "How budget airline works". I really need it for my studies, we have to do a seminar work and we are only allowed to use scientific literature. It would be a great help for me.
