I've had some very clear views since the beginning of the year on the challenges facing Travel and the difficulties ahead. I've taken a cautionary approach based on research…

@LBC @NickFerrariLBC

Thnx 4opp 2talk abt current #Airport #Airline #Travel chaos; not just UK prob; it extends across #Europe

Interesting article about #staycations and their price!!

Regarding #airline #bailouts and #climate conditions, the French case is often referred to as a positive example. But if you look more closely, the ecological conditions of the #AirFrance bailout are only weak measures.

Let us explain – a thread. 👇
1) The conditions are not legally binding.

“France's green requests are a first but we had non-binding commitments for years and airline pollution ballooned,” says @AndrewTMurphy.…
