Airlines Shouldn’t Rush To Cut Jobs

Geraint Harvey, Daniel Wintersberger, Peter Turnbull via The ConversationUK | Several airlines have announced sizeable redundancy programmes due to Covid-19 spreading, but previous crises show that there are viable alternatives to job cuts.

As a result, they were less likely to experience industrial strife and the business recovered more quickly.
