A long read from The Guardian about how the airline industry is facing COVID-19 and its very existence.

Some discussion on this already from post 2226 onwards: Predictions of when international flights may resume/bans lifted

From the discussion - the hub system has to remain (we can't do without it), and IATA is an industry association... they are adept at painting the picture to maximise government assistance.

Airlines are complaining about lack of demand... yet the QF CEO says there is pent up demand. So the industry 'story' is inconsistent, at best.
