Did your clients think they were leaving on a jet plane called Skyservice today? Ha! Ha! Not so funny, eh, Pumpkins. For the Titans running this business, thereâ€™s no such thing as playing nice. And yesterday, someone released the Kraken.
For the rest of us mortals, airline failure means another clean-up on runway 9.
The thing about travel is, youâ€™ve gotta get somewhere. Which means you need planes. And letâ€™s face it, Pumpkins, when they get old and expensive to operate â€¦ they get traded in for a trophy wife. But letâ€™s not dwell on the pastâ€¦
Point is, competitive posturing for the last decade was based on having the most retailers. In this latest round of travelâ€™s evolution, airlines are the trading stock of vertical integration. So I predict a whole lot more air turbulence before the year is up.
Before wishing all the dear Pumpkins a Very Happy Easter weekend, allow me to clarify a few misconceptions:
- TICO does not regulate, oversee or monitor airlines, be they in Ontario or elsewhere.
- Airlines fall under federal regulations.
- Nobodyâ€™s going to save us.
- The Great White Bunny is on his way.
