There was quite a bit of noteworthy aviation law news late this week, so we thought we'd provide a list of links below.
- Though the EU has pressed the pause button on parts of its aviation emissions regulation, it is considering assessing fines on Indian and Chinese carriers that have refused to comply with monitoring requirements and never submitted permits for 2012 emissions.
- EU officials are also reportedly hoping the United States will back them in this dispute.
- The European Commission has approved the rescue loan Poland gave LOT in December.
- The New Zealand government gave its approval to the Qantas-Emirates alliance.

We'd like to congratulate Michael G. Whitaker, past advisory board member and long-time friend of the International Aviation Law Institute, who will be appointed by President Obama to become Deputy Administrator of the Federal Aviation Administration. Mr. Whitaker was with Trans World Airlines from 1991 to 1994, before spending 15 years with United Airlines, rising to the level of Senior Vice President for Alliances, International, and Regulatory Affairs. Prior to this appointment, he had been working with InterGlobe Enterprises. He should prove to be an excellent appointment.
