Airlines Ask Congress for Another Bailout
Commerical airlines struggling in a sluggish U.S. economy, compounded by war, push for economic help from Congress. Airlines are asking for $9 billion in aid, but lawmakers are reluctant to grant that amount. They say the airlines remain inefficient, even after Congress granted a $15 billion bailout in 2001. NPR's Peter Overby reports.
