A number of places, Venice for example, were in the
middle of implementing plans to greatly reduce tourism
because they thought tourists were a pain in the ass.

In a month they will be BEGGING for more tourism.
But do not go to Italy anytime soon. So far it has the highest
rate of C19 deaths. Hard to say whether it is because the
population is so old, or because the medical system is
crap. Maybe a combo.

We see some of the smaller "discount" carriers already
on the ropes. Nobody wants to be trapped in a metal
tube with a bunch of sick people. There are also fewer
places to go with various levels of international quarrantine
being implemented. The big airlines have enough reserves
and diversification to muddle through, but the little guys
Boeing must be freaking out. First all those bad planes
and lost customers, now potential customers cannot
afford and do not need a bunch of new planes. My
guess is that it will be about two years before travel
generates enough profits to warrant new aircraft.
