Honestly, I don't really care much about the whole subsidy debate, I am just amused about the lengths that involved parties go in order to not use that term.
100% agree, just like the US airlines dont get help from the shareholders, just the people they owe money too under Chapter 11 and of course the tax benefits. ALL airlines get subsidies one way or another, as do many , many companies as the recent tax changes in the US prove
