The banks have money for this now, but will need a bailout later?

Also, if the economy falls into a recession and people wont spend, what happens to the miles? I would think the banks have to use them within a contracted timeframe.

If it means a little less animosity in this world? Something positive coming out of an all around horrible situation? Sure.
