The country’s largest airlines will have to compensate taxpayers for billions in payroll grants to weather coronavirus, the Treasury Department said Friday, leaving the door open to an aid structure that sparked criticism from labor unions, some lawmakers and industry members.

The Treasury Department has received more than 230 applications from air carriers for payroll grants as the virus and harsh measures to stop it drive down air travel demand to the lowest level in decades. Last week, United, Delta, JetBlue, Spirit and others said they applied for the aid.

As the biggest Wall Street institutions have sent most of their employees (including several CEOs) home amid the pandemic, the bank leaders who are still going into the office every day are quite literally few and far between.

But they include two very big names: Goldman Sachs CEO David Solomon, who has been working out of the bank’s lower Manhattan headquarters, and Brian Moynihan, the CEO of Bank of America, who is commuting into the firm’s Boston offices.

That’s a different approach than the one taken by the CEOs of Citi, Wells Fargo and JP Morgan Chase, who are all currently working from their respective homes.

Jamie Dimon, JP Morgan’s CEO, for one, has been working out of his home office since last week, …
