US airlines and airplane manufacturing giant, Boeing, have all requested aid from the Federal Government following the ongoing COVID-19 crisis that has forced the grounding of almost 80% of the country’s fleet and crippled Boeing’s output further.

Boeing said that “a minimum of $60 billion in access to public and private liquidity, including loan guarantees” was appropriate for the aerospace-manufacturing industry.

According to The Wall Street Journalairline executives are seeking $50 billion in government money.

Vinay Bhaskara and Gary Leff discuss whether such a bailout is necessary, and most importantly, whether it is fair.

Gary Leff is one of the foremost experts in the field of miles, points, and frequent business travel—a topic he has covered since 2002.

Leff is the co-founder of frequent flyer community InsideFlyer.com, emcee of the Freddie Awards, and named one of the “World’s Top Travel Experts” by Conde’ Nast Traveler (2010-Present).
