Delta Air Lines CEO: Pre-election stimulus looks unlikely, but both parties support money for airlines

Delta Air Lines CEO Ed Bastian: "At whatever point a stimulus is approved, I'm optimistic it will support the sector."

Video Transcript

ED BASTIAN: It gets to a bigger question of what's the future of a stimulus program in general. I think there has been bipartisan support for another round of stimulus for the airlines, given the important place-- place that we sit and serve in our national recovery. Right now, it doesn't look like a stimulus will happen prior to the election.

Whether it happens during a-- a post-election potential lame duck session, I don't know. Whether it's going to be next year, I don't know. But at whatever point a stimulus program is approved, I'm optimistic that the airlines will be a piece of that.
