Went into Santander today which is now Coronavirus heaven. They have taken out the perfectly good cashpoints and replaced them with touchscreen versions! At least with the old ones you could press the keys with a pen or your car keys, now you need latex gloves and some hand sanitiser afterwards. They are not even that good with clunky and far from intuitive menus.

Should reach its peak in the summer then expect the virus to hopefully level out.
We’ve had our first reported case in Hinckley.

Absolute madness.
Virgin Atlantic are having to fly empty planes to keep their routes open during this virus outbreak.
The government want the rules temporarily changed so airlines don’t have to fly empty planes has its not good for their business or the environment.

Now thats silly . . .
The airlines must fill their timed take off slots from the departing airport & land at the arrival airport destination otherwise the slot will be lost.
The government are going to talk to the EU about suspending this practice whilst the virus is on.
Seems ridiculous to have empty planes in the sky with no paying passengers on board.

Some pen pusher somewhere without a pilot licence must have cooked this one up. . .

Korean air are in big trouble.
Virgin Atlantic aren’t the only airline running empty or nearly empty planes to keep hold of lucrative slots at key airports.
We need the EU to relax the rules whilst people cut back on taking flights at the moment.
