COVID-19: With Travel Halted, What Happens To The Planes?
With the COVID-19 pandemic, airlines are facing an unparalleled challenge in aviation history - keeping their planes grounded, which is almost as complicated as keeping them in the air.
What do airlines have to do to protect their planes as they go into suspended animation?
Three Asian airlines - Singapore Airlines (SIA), Philippine Airlines (PAL), and AirAsia - undertake the unprecedented feat of keeping their fleet viable even as almost all travel is curtailed.

Fadzhil Bakar this is actually a very emotional episode, maybe i was hesitant to see the world is changing right in front of my eyes
Marius M Impressive: These men and women are exceptionally competent. Truly inspirational and informative. I really enjoyed this level of information, logistical dexterity, and commitment to their profession. terrific.
Azel Joy Portugues I am pissed off with Air Asia for canceling my flights many times. But after watching this video, I just started crying. Especially when one engineer spoke about him missing his wife and daughter. This pandemic indeed affects and hurts us in different ways and levels of our lives. May God bless everyone. And maybe I should try to be more understanding and open my eyes that it's not just me suffering.
Davis Urdaneta Kudos to these engineers! They are playing such a very important role in aviation behind the scene.
athish ck There r a million people who sacrifice their lives for us and get the least recognition. Salute to our engineers
Andrew Andrew As a former aircraft maintenance crew, l know what it is to make an aircraft ready for flying. For all the maintenance crew those who are still on jobs and those who were laid off thank you for keeping the planes flying in safe conditions. God Bless You.
Luthaniel Pok Massive respects to these engineers who keeps the plane safe for everyone. It is one heck of a job and gosh the dedication levels are insane
Mark My Words As a fellow Technician of 32 years I share your pain. We work to maintain aircraft for safe flight and to see so many beautiful aircraft grounded is very disheartening. We love our work and feel a sense of pride every time we do our job and get our passengers to their destinations safely. Stay safe my brothers we soon will be flying again...
kswsquared The passengers' lives are in the hands of the pilots, the pilots' and the passenger's lives are in the hands of the aircraft engineers (and the ATCs). Kenneth Seet Touching documentary of the sacrifices these flight engineers make to ensure that we can all fly again once this pandemic is over. At the end of the storm are the clear blue skies of hope and rejuvenation!
