I said "supposedly loaned" because that interview also mentions that Interjet has yet to receive the money because according to their sources Interjet fears that Tax Authorities would seize it and they really need it to maintain operations (quote: "no lo quieren ingresar porque Hacienda lo tomaría directamente y eso no quieren, porque ese es el dinero que necesitan para mantener operativa a la aerolínea").
I guess that to pay the leases for the A320s they will have to move the money through a tax haven in which the authorities of the many countries in which Interjet is delinquent cannot seize it.
Sounds like a legit business case.
Seriously how is this even allowed??
