After more than 100 days of lockdown, many Britons are keen to enjoy the freedom and adventure of travel once again. But the impact of Covid-19 on the travel industry - and travellers - will be felt for some to come.

Why a delay is better than a disaster

Chesley “Sully” Sullenberger was the pilot who saved US Airways Flight 1549 in 2009 by landing in New York's Hudson River. He once visited a Chinese restaurant many years before he became a hero. There he received a fortune that read: “A delay is better than a disaster.” He kept that fortune with him on every flight. It reminded him to have the “courage to reject the merely expedient”; it was with him when he emergency-landed his plane after a bird strike, saving all 155 passengers and crew.
