House Democrats try to claw back COVID aid from cargo airlines

The third-ranking Democrat in the House of Representatives is asking four cargo airlines to return more than $630 million they received in emergency funding to keep workers from losing their jobs during the coronavirus pandemic, saying they aren’t entitled to the money because cargo business is roaring.
South Carolina Rep. James Clyburn, the majority whip and chairman of the Oversight and Reform select subcommittee on the coronavirus crisis, on Monday wrote Amerijet International, Atlas Air Worldwide Holdings (NASDAQ: AAWW), Kalitta Air and Western Global Airlines to return the money or demonstrate that they needed the funds to prevent involuntary furloughs.
