And I’m a mechanic for a major airline, it affects me majorly as well.
life is not always "beer and skittles",to coin and old phrase,nor is everyones life like the old children's book "Pollyanna"..we have to face facts that there are some really good times and some really bad times in just about everyones life,and we just have to have strength for the bad cannot look away,nor deny the facts,nor can you blame the media (as someone n here did)for reporting what is going on..they also report good things as well..the airlines will come back,possibly with a slow "restart", but too many people depend upon them now to get from place to place for business as well as pleasure travel..time,a little faith,and a dose of reality are what people need to move forward form our current situation...

No need to be sarcastic, don’t read the article if your not interested. It’s a tough time for everybody at the moment.

You are exactly right! We no longer watch the Covid channels and only watch movies and music. Life is so much better without 24/7 hysteria.
