Collision Course.

Following on from my easyJet article last week there are further developments in the ongoing pain being felt in the travel industry, in which airline and travel firm bosses are blaming the government's dreadful travel traffic light system and the incomprehensible guidance coming from number ten for the impending collapse of the industry.

There is a growing feeling of confusion, frustration and complete bewilderment at the government's lack of understanding and decision making around this system.

We now see the situation has developed into a lawsuit that the travel industry including certain airlines who are looking to sue the government. It is only right that the bosses are taking action and yes, that action is to save the companies that they have been charged with the responsibility for running.

Any CEO who will fight for the survival of their company and to save thousands of colleagues' jobs and careers deserve to be heard and be allowed to continue trading.

Previously I have written that the government needs to consult, involve and invite those very same business leaders to the table and let them get their fair hearing so they can drive the agenda in opening up their industry.

An analogy of the predicament that the industry is facing was shown in a programme called Aircraft Crash Investigation on National Geographic. The investigation into the South Korean Airways cargo flight crash near Stansted in December 1999 was due to faulty instruments and pilot error.
