US travel industry seeks gov’t assistance, new tax breaks

The US travel industry on Friday asked Congress for $10 billion in federal grants to promote safe practices, new liability protections and tax credits for travelers and the industry. The US Travel Association also wants $13 billion for U.S. airports and a refundable tax credit of up to 50% of travel expenses through the end of 2022.

Tax break or not, its expensive as all hell to run an airport. As far as high speed rail, as someone in comments sugested, that has it cash issues to. You gotta build infrastructure that can handle high speed rail, maintinannce, the stations, gotta secure land to build this stuff. Not saying im against it just being real. I would love to have more rail in America, since i dont like flying

No. Fix the broken models they are operating under, loosen the regulations, etc. If they cannot survive then fine, let's switch to high-speed trains instead.

I’d be all for this if these weren’t problems they were having before the Rona. Maybe instead of bailing out these people let the market run its course. Maybe new companies will rise up. I remember when ATA went under southwest picked up most of the pieces. We all know the cries for a bail out were coming in the next 5 years.
