US airlines seek more than $50B in govt assistance as coronavirus roils business

US airlines are seeking government assistance of more than $50 billion as the industry reels from the coronavirus outbreak. The assistance program could, reportedly, include ’government-backed loans, cash grants or other measures including relief from taxes and fees.’ The aid, if received, would be the industry’s first bailout since the wake of the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks and the largest ever.
