from what i read about the bill - commercial airlines will get $25 billion in payroll grants and $25 billion in loans. to me, the payroll grants mean there will be no layoffs; at least until aug 31. this was promised by the airlines to secure the grants. aa's labor costs were about $12+ billion for all of 2019. looks like all the airlines took a hit in march on labor costs from dramatically lower revenues in march. april, may, june, july and august. 5 months. the numbers look right: just for aa - wages and benefits for 42.25% of $12+ billion. the govt. has said that a stimulus #4 or #5 in the near future is not ruled out. it's an election year..election year or not, the airlines won't be allowed to fail. this fully prepares the airlines for a total 1-2 week shutdown, if necessary. don't think we'd ever see that, probably 1 week at the most, if there is one. what do i know? this is the conclusion i have come to.
