A good blog on the major US carriers’ “sabre-rattling” in Washington against their Gulf rivals, by the excellent no-nonsense editor of ATW, Karen Walker. She claims that the US’s  ‘big three’ are appealing against the three major Gulf carriers’ attempts to break into the North American market. But she notes that they can’t have it both ways– there are risks to asking for regulatory intervention. And whatever subsidies the Gulf carriers may or may not get, the point is that they have built a product that customers like. “That’s the market at work, and that’s where US carriers should invest their time and resources, not in lunches on Capitol Hill,” she writes.
