LH To Fly From AMS To Jfk?

Wed Nov 06, 2002 9:11 pm

Maybe this has already been discussed, but what will yesterdays ruling by the European Court of Justice mean? A quote from the EU-website: 'Of particular interest is the Court's finding that the nationality clauses in the [bilateral between European nations and the US] agreements, which restrict international traffic rights to the national flag carriers of the countries concerned, are contrary to the Treaty.

Will (and how) this change European aviation industry?

I'm looking forward to your opinions. Geert

If this order includes LHR too than I can imagine that many airlines will push into there to offer service out to NA from there. I know that Lufthansa wants to offer longhauls from LHR but I believe that this would happen through bmi rather than using LH A340's or 744's from there.
