Director level folks aren't rolling in the moolah like those in the executive group.

The March 16th pilot new hire class has been sent home. Hard to say for sure what comes next.

So far I don't see any mention of 'grants' to the airlines in today's Senate bill. It is hundreds of pages long and is written like international NOTAMs. Loans and loan guarantees it seems.

$50 billion in loans to the pax airlines, $8 billion in loans for the freight dogs and $17 billion in loans for the Boeing bailout.

17 (1) Not more than $50,000,000,000 shall be

19 senger air carriers.
20 (2) Not more than $8,000,000,000 shall be
21 available to make loans and loan guarantees for
22 cargo air carriers.
23 (3) Not more than $17,000,000,000 shall be
24 available to make loans and loan guarantees for
25 businesses critical to maintaining national security.
There is a weak sounding no-furlough clause attached to the loan or loan guarantee:

18 (F) the agreement requires the eligible

Now it appears that even that mild 'furlough protection' language was left out of the draft of the bill marked 'Final'.

And what was assumed to be the Boeing bailout fund has suddenly expanded in paragraph (3) cited above:

11 (3) Not more than $150,000,000,000 shall be
12 available for other eligible businesses.

And yet another report from a Reuters reporter.




Looks like Mitch's copy above was not the final bill. Did cargo drop from $8 billion in loans to $4 billion in loans? And pax airlines down to $25 billion in loans instead of $50 billion?
