With the end of the Covid-19 pandemic, and for a bit of fun we decided to poll our readers on their (your) views of the short- and medium-term prospects for the airline industry.

The results (see chart) were not totally surprising: the majority (57%) plumped for 2024 as the recovery year; 20% a bit more optimistically suggesting 2023; and 24% more pessimistically thinking 2025 or later.
