US car­ri­ers vs Emi­rates.

Kathimerini English - - Focus -

Hon­dos com­pa­nies re­sulted in the re­duc­tion of the orig­i­nal fine of 1.24 mil­lion eu­ros, im­posed dur­ing the ar­bi­tra­tion process last year, by 15 per­cent. The rule vi­o­la­tion dates from the pe­riod from June 2003 to June 2006.

Lead­ers of the three big­gest US air­lines are seek­ing to meet with new Sec­re­tary of State Rex Tiller­son to re­vive their stalled com­plaint that ri­vals from the Mid­dle East are get­ting un­fair gov­ern­ment sub­si­dies. The is­sue took on new ur­gency last month when one of the fast-grow­ing Mid­dle Eastern car­ri­ers, Emi­rates, an­nounced plans to be­gin a new route between Athens, Greece, and Ne­wark, New Jersey, just out­side New York City. Such flights would en­tirely by­pass Emi­rates’ home na­tion, the United Arab Emi­rates.
