Regulatory Responses to the Challenges Facing Large European Carriers in the New Global Market

Our first cover article analyzes the competitive challenges facing large European airlines. Author Martin Coleman analyzes potential legal and regulatory responses to competition from the Gulf carriers, particularly with respect to issues of unfair subsidization and whether Etihad’s recent acquisition of ownership interests in European carriers are consistent with EU ownership and control rules.

While we have just completed two very successful events in Washington, D.C., planning has already begun for our next two events: the Space Law Conference to be held in Washington in June, and the Annual Conference, scheduled for Los Angeles in September. I am particularly excited about the Forum coming to LA, my home, and expect a great program.

This column provides a brief summary of each of the articles in this issue.

We interview Reggie Govan, Chief Counsel of the FAA. Reggie discusses his distinguished and diverse legal career, which has included serving as an Assistant District Attorney in Manhattan, counsel to congressional committees, a civil rights litigator, and, most recently, Managing Associate General Counsel at Freddie Mac.
