Emirates CEO Not Worried about Next US Leader amid Air Row

Tuesday, 26 April 2016 01:24 PM

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (AP) — The chairman and CEO of long-haul airline Emirates said on Tuesday that he's not worried about the next U.S. president being more protectionist amid an ongoing row with American carriers.

"Different governments come and go," but it won't have much of an effect, Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al Maktoum told journalists. He also said that airlines should negotiate disputes with the government, not between themselves.

U.S. carriers, including American, Delta and United, have criticized what they say are billions of dollars in subsidies to Gulf carriers. They have pressed Washington to reconsider treaties that allow Gulf airlines to fly to the U.S.

Emirates, although owned by Dubai's sheikh-ruled government, vigorously denies receiving state subsidies.
