Emirates' Dubai-Athens-New York flight violates U.S. aviation agreement, say U.S. airlines | Reuters

Emirates' Dubai-Athens-New York flight violates U.S. aviation agreement, say U.S. airlines | Reuters:

"Emirates' announcement on Monday that it would start flying to the United States with a stop for passengers in Greece sparked a strong reaction from a lobby group representing U.S. competitors who accused it of competing unfairly through state subsidies.

The world's largest long-haul airline said it would start daily flights to New Jersey's Newark Liberty International Airport via Athens on March 12.

Emirates was "flagrantly violating" the air services agreement that allows it to fly to the United States, said the Partnership for Open & Fair Skies, which represents Delta Air Lines (DAL.N) and other U.S. airlines."
