About This Meeting

Delta Airlines CEO Richard Anderson discussed Open Skies agreements at the Detroit Economic Club meeting Tuesday, June 23rd, 2015, which allows people to fly to nearly any point on the globe.

However, two of the agreements are not being enforced due to Qatar and United Arab Emirates’ ongoing violations of government funded cash subsidies.

“The effects on our economy are negative. We all love and support free trade, but we need a level playing field, and I think Detroit more than any other city in America, understands the importance of quality in trade agreements.”
