    Used to fly Far East via Doha, but their prices aren't so competitive lately. So, buy lots of life insurance, when they drop their prices?

    It's not like they can use the same air craft for long haul, or increase flights and getting airport slots so easily. But they do have to use the air crews and ground staff, or have massive redundancies.

    I find Cinderella a salutary lesson cautioning against travel. There are multi-fold dangers out there, and travelling is just asking for trouble. That is how Lloyds of London makes their money, because ships don't always make it back.

    If you have to travel, buy insurance, so Cinderella will be looked after.
