Report: Lufthansa Group Confirmed That 18,000 Flights Had Been Flown Empty To Keep Airport Slots - Airlive:

[...] Under these "use it or lose it" regulations, prior to the pandemic carriers had to utilise at least 80pc of their scheduled take-off and landing slots.

This was revised to 50pc as coronavirus saw travel become increasingly difficult – but airlines are still struggling to hit this target.

As a result of Lufthansa Group's latest figures, the Belgian federal government has written to the European Commission, calling for a change to the rules on maintaining slots.

    Do post docs get $50k these days?

    I had 12 years experience with a MS, making $100k in 2003 when my company tanked in the 9-11 aftershocks. Asked about doing the work a rotating parade of post-docs had been doing for a colleague. These guys with PhD+5 and up were lucky to get $35k/yr back then. I was shocked, but I guess I made the right choice turning down the PhD TA offer.
