Americans for Fair Skies commends the bipartisan majority of the House for calling for consultations with Qatar and the United Arab Emirates over their violations of the aviation trade agreements, Open Skies, they signed with United States with more than $42 billion in state subsidies. It is clear based on the majority of Congress taking action today, and the poll released Monday that showed 79% of Americans want the U.S. government to take action, that the time for government consultations over the illegal trade violations is now. Our government must stand up for American workers and restore fairness to our skies.
