Here is a question that has started to puzzle me. A year or so ago the EU courts declared that all the bi-lateral open-sky agreements between the USA and individual EU countries were null and void, and a bi-lateral agreement must be negotiated between the USA and the EU. (This led to on-going negotiation about cabotage, launch aid, Bermuda II, and all sorts of other nasty discussions that are not germaine to this thread).
It has just been announced that the UK has entered into a new bi-lateral air service agreement with India.
Is this not in direct conflict with the EU high court ruling?
Is this the UK thumbing their nose at the EU?
Is it all just posturing and politics?
