A freguent flyer says that airlines need to stop buying such expensive airplane tires.

CHICAGO – Every airline in America is starting to really get extremely concerned with the fact that ticket sales have dropped by 71%.

And, right away, they are crying to Uncle Sam (aka Donald Trump) and asking him for a Coronavirus Aid Package Bailout of $50.8 billion.

These are the same airlines that decided to charge passengers 35 cents for a packet of almonds, 75 cents for two Oreo Cookies, and 19 cents for a drinking straw.

One frequent flyer said that airline CEO’s, who make millions of dollars a year, should take a pay cut, and give up their $400-a-day meal allowance.

He also pointed out that the airlines need to start buying a cheaper brand of airplane tire, instead of the unbelievably expensive ones that they are now purchasing from a tire company in Bolivia.

A jet mechanic with one of the leading airlines, said that the airline even installed pay restrooms in the employees locker rooms that employees have to pay $13 to use.

An airline worker, who repairs the microphones that the flight attendants use, wondered out loud, “Who will be next to ask for a bailout scam subsidy, the taxi companies, the sports teams, or, perhaps, the Las Vegas brothels?”

IN CLOSING – Trump has hinted that he may be asking Switzerland for a loan.
