This will help to curb climate change, mos =t of the flights and Cruise ship tours are not necessities, they are the things we need to cut to cut CO2 emissions. Heating our homes or traveling to work are necessary things in this society.
I would bet that NASA could see how this corona scare curbs the problems with our atmosphere and I would bet they will look at this.
Things we want destroy the environment, not things we really need.
We don’t live to work, we work to live.

So, I know that there are pilots looking for planes to fly. I have a few buddies who fly private charters, and they're still doing rather decent.
Flying the ultra rich to their hideaway bunkers.
Even without bonuses airlines have never been wildly profitable. There are far too many factors that hit them hard that are out of their control. Fuel prices are a big one. Delta tried buying their own fuel refinery in 2012, and by last year they were trying to sell it.

On an interesting and fun note, Air Tahiti Nui is running the world's longest domestic flight today. It left Pape'ete and is landing in Paris. Normally the flight stops at LAX for fuel and passengers, but because of the virus they're going nonstop today. It comes down to a 16.5 hour domestic flight.
