John is correct at this point in time.he stated flight hours to hull losses.2 hull losses with a relatively young fleet that is still low in numbers and flight hours is disastrous.
That's why the president of the United States demanded the aircraft was grounded immediately and it's certificate of airworthiness withdrawn.
I'm not aware of any other variant of the 737 ever being subjected to this level of direct government intervention.
I thought you were referring to the CNBC article.
You do realize the BBC article states the total new COVID infections (aggregate) without Omicron broken out. It does later mention 70% being Omicron, but no actual number is given. So...
11,500 X 0.7= 8,050
Approximately, but still an alarming number.
I will add that 8,050 + 223= 8,273
The number should now be correct (give or take a percentage point).
Sleep well my friend.
I wouldn't say 5 years until Pattaya is back to "Normal-ish"... unless there are huge restrictions for quite a few more years...
I believe the minute Tourists are allowed in country with nothing but a covid test and vaccine card, they will pour in and the locals will work around the clock to get that Farang money. The problem now is the system is just too much of a pain in the ass. If the Tourists cant come, then the locals also spend a lot less and its a continuing downward spiral that will reverse almost immediately once the first huge wave of tourists come back.
I have a GF I haven't seen for 2 years due to travel restrictions. She checks different websites every day and keeps me updated. As desperate as we are to see each other even she agrees the current system it too complicated and unreliable. They are waiting for our money and our patronage, and will not fail in providing those services as soon as we land. It wont be immediate, but 5 years is a bit of a stretch. Its not like they need to rebuild the buildings... just restock them with beer, food and pretty girls.
In that Reuters report neither South Africa or Zimbabwe contributed numbers so they could not be included in the totals. I apologize for the incomplete data set , I should have vetted those numbers better.
I had assumed (wrongly) that their source was the WHO. On that I will stand corrected.
The remainder of the post remains valid concerning virulence and the importance of lagging indicators.
Again, have a lovely evening.
