      How about all the taxes and fees that are part of the ticket prices? Those eat massively into the airline’s margins.

                        So they're going bankrupt because they have nobody who knows how to plan ahead? Sounds like they deserve bankruptcy

                                You should make a video about the logistics of Tim Horton's. They have locations even in the most remote northern settlements. Would be very interesting to see how they supply them, how they can still sell things at an affordable price.

                                                  Seems like they knew ahead of time they were going to collapse, so not saying anything til the last minute and stopping flights when people already boarded them seems like a dick move. I am sure they could of canceled a lot of flights further out, and then sold off planes and stuff to fund operations for the more near term flights, to have a more controlled collapse.

Why don't they structure the pay-back of debt to coincide with high profit months? (pay more when the cash flow is good, and pay near NOTHING during the hard months).

                                                                                      it is common knowledge that, since their inception, BANKS have been nothing but trouble. They leave you alone as long as you're making them money, but the MINUTE you don't pay, they STEAL your wealth through foreclosures. Fight the banks, not the operators.

But then I stopped flying Thomas Cook and everything changed, I LOVE Flying again. No coincidence.
