Most tourism destinations have a significant MRG liability because you want to preserve your flights, but quite a few of our flights have been doing well, and therefore we have not been forced to pay out those MRGs.
We do have MRGs, and you will see them in the budget, but they are significantly less than what we have paid out year after year."Small islands and countries not attracting a million or more visitors every year have a challenge getting flights.
