    Can you just stop flights to/ from destinations without violating the Chicago Convention?

    I am not an expert on ICAO/ IATA bylaws, but I believe that there are procedures that have to be followed before a carrier can just stop servicing a destination.

    That’s probably why they are using a lawsuit, otherwise, they would have just stopped flights. Usually, when you want to override law or rules set in place for a certain reason, the court is where it's at

    British Airways did it. Not so sure how different our airlines are. And of course American Airline pilots are now demanding the same thing: American Airlines pilots sue to stop flights to China over coronavirus

    American Airlines Los Angeles to China flights already stopped.

    They are all covered by the same governing body. However, like most authorities, things take time to process. I don't know when BA and American submitted their paperwork, and how long it took to get approvals. Also, don't know who has paperwork in queue.

    There are also contacts between carriers and airports.

    Some things have to be done gradually. I, for one, would be pissed if I was stuck in China, increasing my odds of getting sick and possibly dying, because the carriers would refuse to fly me home.

    Americans already in China are what we call sunk cost. No, I am not saying we abandon them. I say we should organize one LAST airlift from China, and that's it. But in the meanwhile, we continue to send people there, and people there continue to come here. How is that helping?

    Also things taking time to process? The Brits did it days ago. It's not clear whether American Airlines even submitted any paperwork. The only thing clear is that the AA pilots are now SUING their own employers (American Airlines pilots sue to halt flights to China) to halt flights to China. Does that even sound like an airline who's already submitted the so called paperwork?

    Of course there is little to stop someone in China from hopping over to Malaysia, Korea, Philippines, Thailand, etc and then connecting to the USA, UK or whatever other country they want to go to.

    So, unless every carrier, including China Air, Cathay Pacific and Cathay Dragon, stops all flights out of China, nothing is going to stop people from going from China to the US.

    Yea most of that shit is far away and unlikely to come here. The virus could come here and make almost everyone dead. Which might be kind of awesome actually. Might be pretty sweet being one of the few survivors of the plague scavenging around recovering the collections of fellow transformer fans who didn't make it. Sure society ending would suck but I think it would be worth it. I don't suppose there's a place on the forum where everybody lists all the figures they have and where they live? You know. Just in case...

    And from someone who was lambasting people on a TF forum discussing the global impact of the virus on TF production for not doing enough virtue signalling about human suffering. Now that person is sarcastically pining for societal destruction. The hypocrisy and inconsistency destroy any credibility they might have had.

    I typically try to be patient and wait for a few things before I ship, but seeing everyone else have theirs for over a month, plus just plain excitement of having a set of MP Stunticons made it too hard for me to wait.
    Sorry for your misfortunes. I was actually expecting mine Saturday or later because FedEx tracking said it was coming Friday (and I always add at least a day to any FedEx estimate). But mine is at my post office, so I’m cautiously optimistic I’ll have it after work.

    Eh, no worries. I'm one of the few that don't mind the waiting for a package. I'll get it when I get it. Just being overly dramatic for levity's sake.
