Your confusing the Federal compensation, that everyone received. And the loans which so far only HP has applied for and been approved, U has their application pending.

It was a $15 Billion deal, $5 Billion in compensation that all the airlines and cargo carriers recieved, then there's the $10 Billion loan gurantees.

A few have applied and been rejected like Vanguard, HP applied and was approved. U's application is pending, there's a board who decides which airlines get then loans, and the criteria is strict.

One of the criteria is to make the US Gov't a shareholder (thanks to Senator Corzine D-NJ) , which alot of Airlines are reluctant to do.

The funds in the article you read were compensation for the federally mandated shutdown of the air traffic system in the days following 9/11. As STT757 points out, every airline got them, regardless of their size. So far, only HP has recieved a loan although U, UAL, FRNT, and others have applied for the government backed loans.

U has their application pending

US Airways has already received conditional approval for their ATSB loan guarantee. UAL is the airline with the application pending.

Isn't Morris Nachtomi hiding out in Israel since he's facing charges in the US for tax fraud?

Well, the flights to Tel Aviv were the only ones that went out within 12 hours of departure time.

I think that they whole concept of the Federally-backed loans is corporate welfare at its worst. I mean when they gave the airlines money because of the ground hold, some of those that got it really didn't deserve to get it. I mean Midway, they announce on Sept. 12th, that they were shutting down for good, and returned their aircraft to their lessors. But when they get their "free money" for the Feds, they decide to restart again. Midway should have used that money to pay off debts and other expenses, not restart operations. What they did would be the same as giving a junkie drugs or the money to get drugs. I think that the Federal government getting into the airline business is a very bad idea. It's bad enough that between the TSA and the whole Homeland Security (more like Homeland Insecurity if you ask me) thing, the airlines are suffering enough, but to have the government with shares in the airlines that take out the loans is the equivalent of putting the wolf in the field with the sheep. I think that the airlines should have put up physical assets (aircraft, GSE, properties) instead of stock as collateral, because if these airlines go belly up, the stock will essentially be toilet paper, while if they had physical assets, the government could sell those off to get back as much of the loan as they can. Could you imagine a government auction of aircraft? Lot #312411, one Airbus A321, low cycles, low hours, one owner. The bidding starts @ $15 million.....................
