The golden age for airlines could be ending thanks to the spike in worldwide cases of COVID-19. A drop in crude prices would normally be a positive for airlines. However, border closings, event cancellations, and the potential for travelers to end up quarantined could cause a cascade of failures throughout the aviation industry. Now, major US airlines say they need a massive bailout from Congress to avoid laying off scores of workers.

This did not have to happen. What are the communication between XI of China and Trump. Did they make a mutual plan to attack common people or was Xi just hiding it as China does often or was it both of these leaders selfish interests?. Mass Transit Genius Issue at hand: Simple protocols that were never considered from about January to April 2020 caused this via FAKE NEWS time occupation of major leaders around the world too busy to get off the twitter and FB bot of hypnotic fake news they and their enablers publish for selfish money interests/votes. Trump was/is interested in HCQ a fake drug cure and in his personal holding in WPM and GOLD stock (he still is) Xi of China was interested in hiding it from his people to keep things orderly and in power. The FAA of major NYC/state airport hubs listens to the CDC and Trump WH/Cuomo/states. It seems like from January to April 1 2020 Trump and Cuomo did not even communicate about airline hubs (where are the record of communications of Trump/Cuomo to each other ?). Airport hubs caused most of the (100,000 into May 2020) deaths from covid 19 virus by serving as a super spreader Jet conduit. Any handling it even a bit better would have could deaths down substantially including ventilators (which are in no way related to the spread). Vents are not even an issue here. Who is not doing their job at the WH, state and airport hubs? Who is not doing their job at the WH, state and airport hubs? Trump's solution was to buy GOLD, WPM and HCQ an anti viral in France and used in USA.

As inhuman as this sounds, we should have killed all people infected in the beginning. They would be celebrated for taking one for the human race team.

This might be an unpopular opinion, but I don't get why the hate for corporations. They are some of the major job providers in the economy. They along with their employees contributed millions and billions of dollars in taxes to the US Economy and when their business is failing which is due to a world pandemic they get a handout to keep their business afloat.

People forgot why a countries need their airlines here as a lots ppl are complaining against it. You must remember that airline also bring in cargo and goods on the plane to you. Where do you think those avacado cames from or that French chesse etc? It loaded on aircraft belly. Then there is tourist money and retail sales that can generate when ppl visit your city or town which indirectly paid for those shop, store, restaurant, hotels and tourism & retail related industry to survive. The same ppl that ensure you have a job go too. Ppl here are so short sighted that you forgot to look at big picture as everything is connected. If you look at town and city without air travel or logistic to get, you see less job availability and most youth leaving those town for better job elsewhere. It is very reason why countries in worlds have national carrier so that it can bring tourist, business to their countries

They shouldn't be bailed out at all. Airlines and airports are negligent for being the primary vector of contagion spreading this virus around the world and not screening travelers coming and going as they should have. If they had taken full responsibility for containing the spread in the first place, they would not have had to be shut down. They should be sued into extinction for gross negligence.

They will be fine. Top Airlines have been making record gains for years post 9/11 and already knew how bad things can get without warning, so I am sure they are prepared and have their emergency funds and procedures in place.

I'd gander that more than 80 percent of the businesses that can afford to send employees on flights across the globe can CERTAINLY afford to keep them home, and provide them the means to work at home. Modify logistics to ensure the health and safety of not only their employees, but everyone around them.

These media and airline conglomerates are all in bed together! I don’t feel sorry the greedy A-hole CEOs!! Since when did they actually care about customer service?? They only care about $$$$ that’s why everyone is packed in like sardines and have to sit in dirty ass seats!!! F-OFF, there are more important things to worry about!!!!

Airlines deserve it. They treat their customers like crap and after making billions in profits each year they still nickel and dime their customers. When they posted record high profits the next year they started charging for carry on bags. GREED!!! They deserve it. But don’t worry the gvt will bail them out like they did in 9/11 and they will make record profits again.

What's more sad is the average Joe can't even qualify for a loan, but this sector which was at all time highs in Feburary will get billions taxpayer dollars without any paperwork. Hmm, they saved billions with tax cuts, smaller seats, baggage fees, and I'm supposed to care? I just hope southwest airlines make it, the rest can eat crap

If the government gets the same amount in shares, it could work out very well when the industry bounces back. The government can liquidate at a much higher price and actually make a nice profit.

My dad began his flight career just a couple years before 9/11 and his career path and plans were drastically altered. I am a private pilot training to become a commercial airline pilot. I will soon see the struggles he went through. This is my dream and my passion and I will keep fighting for it. I hope the industry will recover.

It seems quite simple to me and I don't know why no one has said it yet. The big worry is the airlines can't pay the banks what they are supposed to. So all this confusion is created so the banking system gets there payments? Now the Fed gets 10% of every dollar they print on PAPER. So a billion dollars for printing off 10 billion dollars. Boy, you talk about a flawless scam. Now the USA is how many trillions in debt? So to relieve a lot of stress our banking system told us in the beginning, that they would take care of there customers. I know they said that just after they murdered President Jackson and convinced people to go with the city bank which of course belongs to the that's right the Rothschild cult. If I'm wrong would someone explain to me where?
