  1. All of this, every single bit of it, is Donald Trump’s fault. And yet some want 4 more years of this.

  2. What about non-airline employees that have lost their jobs???

    • Daniel Thomas…you’ll only receive it if you can prove COVID caused your job loss…some people chose to leave their jobs for fear of getting it and/or giving it to others…it’s not a black and white issue, a lot of gray area

  3. Why is Airline industry asking for Federal Aid?
    What have they done with all those billions of profit they pocketed for decades?

    • @John PrivateLastName You think the new companies would train totally new staff ? They would hire the old companies employees , when there is no excess of pilots unemployed and most of cabin personnel would be rehired … only ones that would lose their jobs are the incompetent CEOs and middle management .
      Also the airline companies have already fired people even after getting billions in welfare this year … were you sleeping ?
      CNBC 9 June 2020 Airline employees’ dilemma: Take severance or gamble on Oct. 1 layoffs … thats after $25 billion aid .
      Sad thing in capitalism is that if a company fails , all the staff will lose their jobs , in communism state finances the company .
      Also 100 000 more unemployed people from airline companies to 40 000 000 , thats 0,25 % increase .

    • @Som Thing Profita are distributed as dividends. Airlines operate on thin margins. Which industry/stashed billions for a long global pandemic? Do you see how stupid you sound?
      ▪▪ The agreement was to keep the workers on the payroll until October-1 even if the companies were not making money. ▪•▪•▪ Come October and the virus is still around, not just in USA, but around the world. A lot of destinations are in lockdowns. So another agreement need to be reached gor at least the end of thr year.

    • @atletico ATM Companies should pay for their workers and not tax payers. Workers already work hard and get payed peanuts. Their positions should be secured.

      @Pete Lind you have some points but, they are not without problems. For instance, I really think that it is irrelevant that 100,000 people represent a 0.25% increase. What I care about is that those people have a family to support. This has nothing to do with Communism, it has everything to do with an external agent causing a problem, in this case, a pandemic. We need to help each other and, leaving people without work and not having the satisfaction of being productive is not a way to help each other.

      If a company fails because it is poorly run/inefficient then it should go out of business but, that is not the problem the airlines are facing today.

      I am not going to make a case for incompetents but, I will make a case for the fact that the true wealth of a nation is its people and the smart thing to do is to protect that wealth in times of adversity.

    • @Kaptain Kid thanks for posting that. i hope someone waiting in a mile long line up at a food bank is able to see this.

  4. I’m sure he will still collect a big fat salary and his Golden parachute if things get really bad.
    Make sure the bailout money goes to the struggling employees since Trump doesn’t car about anything but his corrupt Administration!!!!!

  5. Maybe these airlines should have saved the billions it got the first time around and all that money they saved not paying corporate taxes.

    • @atletico ATM I meant what they did with past years profits they had no raining day fund… Have you flown recently? AA flights have been full…no open middle seats on my flights

    • And will bail them out and they will charge more for the baggages again. There was a time when you didn’t pay for bags what changed it but greed. They can’t even bail out the American people so we keep bail out to Airlines when nobody can travel. Biden Harris 2020. I’m not in favor of that I don’t care if the airline fails there’s too many of them now. They don’t care if the American public fails. Everybody’s life in uproar losing their houses again like 2008 just another way of doing it this pandemic and the ignorance of the Republican Party. So the rich guy is going to try and do it again. We need to vote people vote all these morons out and fix it so they can never do this kind of s*** ever again. 200000 people dead. People are losing their lives every way imaginable. Trump says stock markets doing good. We need to vote in numbers too big to rig

  6. Bail out the taxpayers first and let the corporations eat cake.

  7. They wouldn’t need bail outs if these CEO’s weren’t getting million dollar bonuses.

    • @SoCal Surfer16 If you don’t understand negotiation any better than what your comment is showing about you here I want to offer to sell you the next car that I no longer want. I will get $5000 from you for a car that I would have let go for $1000 and is actually worth around $900.

      @SoCal Surfer16 They are fighting FOR your state and you are complaining? States can’t print money. Feds can. Who is going to rescue states, from COVID expenses? People live in states. That’s where the money needs to go.

      States can’t run deficits. If they don’t get relief there will be layoffs and unemployment like you can’t imagine. 20% unemployment? That would be another Great Depression for 5 years.

    • @Robin Hood You donkeys are cute.

  8. They shouldn’t get another dime until a second non skinny package is sent out to the American people.

  9. Let them struggle. Eventually they will have to reach into the BILLIONS they got before and stashed. Most of them fully deserve to go bankrupt.

  10. Federal bailout for big airlines? No way! Maybe you people should ask your Ceo’s about the company’s rainy day fund. Ohh, wait ….there’s isn’t any. Get in line! Why should you be special?

  11. Where is the people’s bailout?

  12. They don’t need money they have their own money to save their airlines .

    Here I’am struggling economically & the Airlines want more of our tax dollars while millions of Americans including me haven’t seen a penny from tRumps Covid-19 Relief Fund!

    • Oh but his cult scream out we don’t want socialist America and Trump had filed 6 bankruptcies 6 people

    • Go apply at an airline.

      @ᔕɧყ レųиą : Yes, this is all our Public Purse monies. Its not theirs to see fit on how to dole out & to whom & whom not to give to. This type of Public Purse corruption makes me angry.

    • Bunker Baby dRumph | September 23, 2020 at 3:08 PM | Reply

      klimber000.1 : Where do I apply? Do you have an application for me at tRump Airlines or have they gone bankrupt like all of Donald’s business’s including America now?

    • @Bunker Baby dRumph believe me some airlines are hiring you have to open your eyes and do the work but they are.

  14. This is ridiculous what about all the people already laid off and barely making it!

  15. Let them FAIL This is capitalism.

  16. Another “Too big to fail” corporate bailout by the American taxpayer.

  17. All Americans are STRUGGLING!!!
    LET “AIRLINES & BIG INDUSTRY” STRUGGLE TOO!!! It’s only FAIR!!!

  18. I think the American people should come first before the airlines.

    Sorry Americans, your covid relief flight has been canceled.

    Maybe if airlines didn’t pack their flights out of greed: people would have flown more.

    And maybe if they told Ted Cruz to wear his mask on the flight: same thing. F-Um.
