      Believe you me, its just a matter of days one or more cabin or flight crews gets tested positive.

      Everybody else is stupid, only CTN and ZAG are clever still carrying passengers. Very irresponsible.

      Agree. Now almost every larger company has a positive case or at least possible but not (yet) tested cases.
