Few days ago, I saw a 5-second video clip of passengers applauding at the airport while a set of cabin crew and pilots walked by. I’ve never seen anyone at an airport so happy! Passengers are usually sleepy or bored at the gate and would not even acknowledge crewmembers when they arrive. (If at all, they would have a sigh of relief, having waited so patiently and say to themselves, “At long last, we’re leaving.”)

Two minutes left and I will be late for briefing. Worried at the bus; thinking of what transpired minutes earlier just to keep me busy and not notice the time. 45-minute preparation for flight. I wonder why Crew Control calls me and gives me a very tight preparation time. Well, that's fine! Coz why not, pulled for London flight? Geez! Excited to fly, though.

The airline industry has been hit hard several times in modern history, but nothing quite as severe as the recent string of events. COVID-19 has spread to 209 countries and territories worldwide. This is an undeniable fact and reality check. Travel Bans and International Trade on hold means empty seats and parked planes.
