By David Shepardson and Tracy Rucinski

WASHINGTON/CHICAGO, Sept 24 (Reuters)U.S. airline unions expressed hope on Thursday that Congress could strike a deal in the coming days that would provide $25 billion to prevent tens of thousands of furloughs on Oct. 1 after the U.S. Treasury chief said he could not act unilaterally to save airline jobs.
