It helps to speak Icelandic to get all of this clip, produced by Sveinn Gdmarsson, the London correspondent of the Icelandic National Broadcasting Service, but yours truly is in there giving the Airline Business perspective of the industry’s outlook.
That bit, you’ll understand, but the rest of it you won’t because it is in Icelandic, unless of course you come from the island. In it, I make the hardly earth-shattering revelation that more airline failures are likely in the second half. This was shot before the Zoom grounding, so my prediction already came true.
The INBS naturally keeps tabs on its home flag carrier Icelandair. Sveinn tells me the latest from the north is that it has announced further lay-offs. I can’t confirm this because all the newspaper reports in the past few days are in Icelandic – can anyone help?
