Emirates (EK, Dubai Int'l) CEO Tim Clark has warned American Airlines, Delta Air Lines, and United Airlines not to pursue a renegotiation of the Open Skies pact between the United States and the United Arab Emirates as such a move would need to be followed by similar steps taken with regard to Asian and European agreements.
"In the case, you take action against us because we are successful at what we do, you open a Pandora's box of headaches because effectively you have to change everything," he told Reuters.
Last but not least, Tim Clark added it may reconsider its 777X order if the Open Skies agreement gets altered:
The Emirates boss also warned that should the Open Skies pact with the US be scrapped or renegotiated, the carrier may be forced to reconsider its orders with Boeing (BOE, Chicago O'Hare) for thirty-five B777-8s and 115 B777-9s.
