U.S. Travel Association's Education SeminarU.S. Travel Association Executive Vice President for Public Affairs Jonathan Grella issued the following statement on reports that Qatar Airways will seek an ownership stake in American Airlines:

 

“The Open Skies saga has jumped the shark. Bluff called: Time for airlines to finally file their Open Skies complaint through proper channels [the U.S. Department of Transportation, under the International Air Transportation Fair Competitive Practices Act], get past the griping and get back to growing travel and the U.S. jobs that come with it.
