        And then you have Croatia Airlines which has soo much debt, isn't profitable, and yet the government is giving tens of millions of taxpayers' €€€ to save it.😫

          Sam, I have already written you a DM on your instagram but I got no reaction.. 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.

              We have other modes of transport in Europe, the competition is split between air, rail and road. That's why the seasonality is higher during the summer - more long distance demand.

                                                    In other words, American airlines don't have this problem because Americans run businesses, work, and actually have money to spend. Capitalism wins again.

The USA subsidizes them all, federally, through serial bankruptcy. This costs taxpayers billions of dollars. Make them all go Chapter 9 instead of 11 and this will end. Another problem, business expenses as tax deductions. End this. We have teleconferencing via internet now. No need to fly, eat, party, and stay at a five star hotel for businessmen----especially when they write it off as a business expense and you end up paying for it.

Just like the division of Varig in rot and healthy enterprises, as seen also the GM case or the portuguese bank BES. Cook doesnt seem to fall as the others. Well, it's just a guess. Sorry my sorry english.

It's not rocket science but the working class believe money grows on trees so they keep asking for more until they become unemployed.
