The U.S. and United Arab Emirates have resolved an Open
Skies dispute related to accusations that U.A.E. carriers were benefiting from
government subsidies in violation of Open Skies, according to The Associated
Press. The agreement is similar to one the U.S. and Qatar reached
this year, in which Emirates and Etihad will offer more financial transparency
and aver that they have no plans to add fifth-freedom flights to the U.S.,
meaning flights between the U.S. and a country other than the U.A.E. The deal
will be announced Monday, according to the AP.
