I was astonished to find that T Cook planes couldn’t be used to bring T Cook peeps back. Because planes owned by a bankrupt company can’t be used. I even asked the CAA about this and they muttered summat about not us Guv.
Planes owned by failed airlines would be used to repatriate passengers under plans announced by the government.
Proposed legislation would enable collapsed carriers to be placed in special administration, meaning their aircraft and crew can continue flying to bring customers back to the UK.
Under the existing system, when an airline folds its planes are grounded, leaving passengers at risk of being stranded.
There does seem a certain sense being deployed here.
