republicans are at risk of really important because they losing the senate. have been able to improve on the there is an awful lot of political imperative for them to cash burn. you cited correctly $40 million agree to a larger number. i expect that to be the case. a day they burned in the second there is brinkmanship. quarter going to $25 million a the president and the white day in the third quarter. house are talking about cutting funding for tracking and slightly better cargo revenues, tracing. much better cost performance. as far as what segments will obviously, lower jet fuel costs really benefit, i think the focus should be on trying to helped a lot. support the states and the key element that you rightly municipalities, as well as local pointed out is the number of education structures and symptoms -- and systems. people who are considering it is important that the u.s. taking voluntary leave. allow schools to reopen, to they reached a deal with their allow people to go back to work or tino parents with children. pilots to offer early retirement for me, that is where i want to and other packages. that is really important to winning the recovery. see the focus, as well as continuing to support the i think it is going to be bad testing and tracing. the u.s. policy response to the this year. this year is going to be a virus has been very poor because disaster. for united, we are not worried they have not funded testing and tracing. shery: we need more federal about them. they have more than enough government involvement.

cards. for the loyalty program, united was able to raise $6.8 million worth of capital, pledging it as an asset. monetizing it enables them to ♪ generate additional liquidity. the other key element is they updated coronavirus case value the program at 12 times ebita. -- numbers in australia will be updated in a couple of hours. the government is extending support and the reserve bank is there is more that they could warning of a drawnout recovery. do. paul allen joins us. whether other airlines choose to what are they saying about the go this route, we will see. american has said they will latest support measures on the government side? pledge their loyalty program as paul: the support measures you mentioned were extended, as collateral for a government-backed loan. that element is the idea expected, on tuesday. endsubsidy goes until the they have these customers who of march. want to travel and to are although, at a lower rate. looking forward to getting back the markets welcoming it. in the air and are engaged with spokeserve bank governor united. themnk that means a lot to on tuesday and he welcomed the

to certain extent that we will 2021 andwdown in numbers, the 2.5 million that travel to the united states day coming into 2022. last year, i would say 60% were -- is ais is a fear a combination of business travelers and international severe recession and one we have travelers. right off the bat, you are to put into our model. the narrative have shifted. looking at knowability to get a million passengers a day. in australia, it is slightly alpha forine deliver worse because the government is limiting the number of people markets in the second half, the per day that can travel into the country. dislocation we have seen in the this virus is apparently -- it first half, could this vaccine really change the v narrative? is hanging on and it does not >> the vaccine could give a want to let go. better hope in my point of view obviously, you have the virus under control there and you do at least for, you know, the near not want to see new cases again so the element would be keep term, another short term. a short-term, maybe there is a symptomtic may be a little bit of rebound, but a lot is priced. that will not be impactful and the next 12 months in most and keep the border safe. cases. after this reality people really want to go places.
