And then you have to ask yourself: Would that be a bad thing?

Obviously, it will be bad for people whose livelihoods depend on it, but it
will probably be a good thing for mankind in general.

I heard that they often make more profit from the cargo in
the belly than they do from the passengers sitting above.
Cargo is lucrative, especially now that consumers just
expect near-instant delivery.

But can cargo sustain ALL the airlines ? I doubt it. A few
are going to implode and that will be that. New carriers
will appear to replace them once the market is in shape to
support large-scale travel again.

Somewhere I read a calculation that the total return on equity of all
airlines from 1919 to the present was negative. This is a really bad
shock but if they survived everything in the past century, they'll
survive now.

I certainly don't expect them to survive in their current form. We'll
see relatively more cargo and fewer people, doubtless with higher
ticket prices.
