Association of European Airlines: "There are still several areas of imprecision, all urgently needing to be refined. But for the time being, the current provisions must at least be clarified and implemented consistently and coherently so that airlines and passengers are not confronted with different interpretations in each country. Key is that, whatever decisions are taken, they are based upon verified and verifiable data," Ulrich Schulte-Strathaus, Secretary General. Source: AEA, 08-May-2010.
