OT: Virgin withdraws from Gatwick
In message , at 08:43:36 on Thu, 7 May 2020,
Virgin is relatively insignificant at Gatwick,
"The airline plans to reduce its workforce by 3,150 people, which is
equivalent to more than a 30 per cent cut."
Most of them are not employed in, or live close to, the airport.
Even if that's true, their jobs depend on Virgin being at Gatwick.
Depends if you are one of the 3,000 perhaps.
Yes, of course, just as it hurt the larger numbers affected by the other
airlines cutting back. For example, BA is threatening up to 12,000
redundancies. And it's not as if all these laid-off staff can walk into
other airline jobs.
but losing it, TC, BA and Norwegian will hurt.
You think there's significant transfer passengers? And BA is threatening
to leave too, I gather.
As I said in the remark you were responding to.
Ah the difference between:
but losing it will cause TC, BA and Norwegian to be hurt.
but losing it, and TC, BA and Norwegian, will hurt the airport.
