Airlines can handle Brexit but frustrated by the politics, chiefs say

Airlines will be able to withstand the impact of Britain leaving the European
Union, even without a deal, but the lack of political progress is frustrating and
has dampened consumer demand, airline chiefs said on Monday.

Britain is due to leave the European Union on March 29, and Prime Minister
Theresa May has yet to seal a deal that has the approval of lawmakers in
Westminster.

I dont think its concern that weve expressed its frustration We do
really need the politicians to resolve this, Willie Walsh, CEO of... [

Some time ago it was postulated in a thread within here that on 29th March, when the UK's EU open skies agreement came to a "cliff edge" end, all British aircraft would then not be able to land anywhere within the Federation. It would be the simple consequence of a revoked treaty.

Pointing out that the likes of Spain, who host about 13 million UK tourists a year (Cyprus 1 million) might just have a problem with that, was contemptuously swept aside. A good example of the detachment between the religious fervour Brussels "EU project" mentality and harsh reality. Obviously, to any rational person, despite the ivory tower Commission's views, it ain't gonna happen.

Has anybody looked at what the (ex-Project Fear devotee) Carney has been saying recently about the devastating consequences for the EU of the implications for the derivatives market of no deal?

Let's be honest though. Any chance of a civilized discussion on this subject was beaten to death in here a long time ago.

Have many of the UK airlines moved their headquarters from the UK to other
European countries?

Have the UK airlines been given a time extension to allow them to change
their shareholding so that majority control moves to EU nationals rather
than British?

After Brexit, with UK airlines headquartered in the EU, no longer under the
control of British shareholders can this really be viewed as a positive aspect
of the impending Brexit?

What exactly have the individual EU countries like Spain or Cyprus done
or is it the EU and the airlines themselves that have taken action to
avoid disruption as far as possible?

A bit overdramatic - there are plenty of threads that, whilst either side
might not like the comments, they are not uncivilised. Tedious, repetitive
and the cause of a fair few arguments they may be but not really
uncivilised Wink

It was postulated that this could be a result of leaving the EU and, as such, the possibility needed to be prepared for.

I agree.

Unfortunately much of the discussion was shut down with the two words 'Project Fear' - almowt inevitably by those that talked about Turkey migrants, EU army, EUSSR, etc.

Ohh, come on Kwacka, you can't be serious? We had a veritable blitz of scaremongering from a whole host of top tier people and organisations in the campaign. All hyperbole, which subsequently evaporated. Much like how we would all suffer so badly if we didn't join the Euro (a lot of the same jokers actually).

Even so, that's been absolutely dwarfed by what we've experienced in the past couple of years. Rising with ever more hysteria as we close on the end of this month. I suspect it will be having exactly the same effect on the British people though. How little the elite "we know best" ruling class learned. Although, I imagine (and fervently hope) the next General Election will carry quite a lesson.

My first para encapsulated the very essence of Project Fear. All UK planes will be barred, post-treaty, from landing in the EU from 29th March 2019 - period. Total Horlicks of course, for reasons which a blind man could see. Rolling Eyes

Anyway, apparently there's nothing to worry about. With apologies to Bobby Ewing:
