Should the airline industry be bailed out? Reports from Bloomberg show that they spent over 90% of cashflow over the past 10 years on stock buybacks and now are stuck holding the bag.

I say for every industry that needs to be bailed out, new consumer friendly policies are instituted. You want to be bailed out, no more seat selection fees for tickets in economy, no more bs baggage fees etc. Banks want to be bailed out, no more overdraft fees, no more atm fees etc

No more ridiculous change fees after 24 hours of booking.

I'm in favor of loans with stock collateral. Let's make money off the bailout like we did the banks in 2008. I think a modern country needs a competitive airline industry, but I don't want flag carriers. I would not be in favor of a Cruise Industry bailout as we don't need one, they don't fly an American flag and don't employ many Americans.

Spot on with cruise companies, why would we bail out Liberian firms that actively avoid US regulation? Royal Caribbean has argued that because they are Liberian, certain laws do not apply to them Can't have it both ways.

Yeah agree. The reality is, do we want affordable flights to all the places we want to go? Then yeah, I guess we will have to bail those guys out, but I agree, yet another reason stock buybacks shouldn’t not be allowed. Or instead should we give every Americans travel vouchers to use on the airlines? 😂

Bailout the workers! They didn’t decide to put all their cash buying into buying their inflated stock! In reality, the government will likely have to do something. Taxpayers made money from the auto bailout after all.

What about bailing out the casinos? I have zero sympathy for them.

Yeah I have an issue with this one too. Let us give you all this money so you can continue taking everyone’s money.

Give them the bail out loan with restrictions on executive compensation until the loan has been paid off.

Is anyone worried about long term career success with new WFH normal? I’m awful at it. I’ve got ADHD and have always adapted my environment to set myself up for success. I always sucked at doing any sort of work at home, so I always studied in the library in college or with a group of friends. My last job had an open WFH policy that I tried a few times before realizing I always got WAY more done in the office, and in less time. (cont’d within)
