Issue Overview

Airlines are not happy with their governments. Air Canada complains of overzealous border restrictions. Asia’s airline association complains of inconsistent policies. Allegiant criticized Washington for inadequate testing and information. Ryanair is livid about government bailouts. Fair enough. But the true enemy is an extremely infectious virus which keeps on spreading. It’s creeping back into places where it was once well controlled. It’s spreading at alarming rates in some of the most populous countries, including India, the U.S., and Brazil. With some modest exceptions like the Chinese domestic market, there’s really no airline recovery to speak of. And there might not be for the rest of 2020.
