Though you might think its far fetched I don't see BA back at LGW before 2022 and in all honesty I reckon they are on the brink of pulling out completely but just cannot quite say it yet. As others...

Nothing going to happen I think to the ability to go to and from the USA until 4th November (cannot think why......) and even then I think it will be slow. The trunk routes will survive on cargo...

So it started like this for the 747-400. We know where this ended up and AF has already canned the A380 entirely. So what will be next. First Class - cannot be that far behind......

CPT is a real pain to know what to do because the current rules are no international tourists until Feb 2021 and that could of course change multiple times. I suspect however that 1 flight a day will...

We are in the middle of a pandemic and if there was a single person on any of proposed farewell flights that then got COVID the fallout would be immense.
