Airlines and Aviation Alert
This edition of Jones Day's Airlines and Aviation Alert showcases the many ways in which Jones Day services the aviation industry. From the aircraft finance group, we have an article highlighting many new regulatory developments anticipated to affect aircraft finance transactions. From the aviation litigators, we offer a summary of emerging case law interpreting relevant lease provisions. This issue also contains an in-depth look at seniority integration when airlines "merge" under the relevant McCaskill-Bond Statute, provides an update on the slot swap litigation involving LaGuardia and Reagan airports and the DOJ's investigation at National, and analyzes how bilateral investment treaties may be used as a tool for global airlines to redress market barriers.
