Lot of noise from government ruling out a summer of business as anywhere near usual.

Mgmt at ESY said that if they don't have a good summer in 2021 there is a possibility the employees could be out of work by October.

Well there's a cheerful thought.

In all seriousness, it's all going to come down to how fast the powers that be can protect the bulk of the population. If any of these new more virulent strains prove vaccine-resistant then all bets are off.

Another thing that might be on their mind is whether or not other countries can vaccinate their populations quickly. Isn't there a thing with kids and certain vaccines, where the "herd immunity" gets diluted if enough don't get the vaccine. So we could be rolling along fine but if Brazil or the US for example is holding us back, letting a load of them back in might not be a good idea.

Well the UK and US are well ahead of us in terms of vaccination at the moment and the rest of the EU will likely be similar enough to ourselves give or take a few weeks. So that should cover the majority of destinations.

Other parts of the world are more likely to lag far behind.

That is where vaccine passports are likely to come into play. Though that may even come into play from the US if there are enough anti-vaxers there.

No one has the balls to stand up to the US. Think ESTA, 24hr advance pax notice, the ball ache of applying for a crew visa so you can fly into their country and stay a night. Whatever the yanks demand they get. Go the other way and you will get a very short sharp wake up call.

Trump has gone and lifted the travel restrictions, though to be honest given many countries are imposing them one wonders if this isn’t just politics and the routes will be banned again Wednesday afternoon.
