Urgency enters US airlines push to limit capacity in Gulf row

The chief executives of American Airlines, Delta Air Lines and United Airlines gathered to reiterate the need to limit the expansion of the Gulf carriers to the USA, adding a newfound sense of urgency to the issue they began pushing in January.

They laid out a largely cohesive message on the issue of alleged subsidies to the big three Gulf carriers – Emirates Airline, Etihad Airways and Qatar Airways – at likely their first ever joint event at the National Press Club in Washington DC today.
