News / KLM and Dutch government hit back at Kalitta’s claims of ‘wrongful’ loss of airport slots

first_img Dutch organisations, including KLM and the government, are fighting back over Kalitta Air’s claim that its slots at Schiphol Airport were “wrongfully withheld”.Last month, the US cargo carrier called on the US Department of Transportation (DoT) to restrict or suspend KLM’s US cargo operations due to a complaint made against the Dutch government, Schiphol (AMS) and Stichting Airport Coordination Netherlands (ACNL).Kalitta claimed “unjustifiably and unreasonably discriminatory” actions to restrict its access to the Amsterdam-New York route.In a filing to the DoT, KLM said it “strenuously objects to any such unjustified action”. By Alex Lennane 01/03/2019 It argues that Kalitta had “failed to demonstrate it suffered discrimination”, and that negotiation is better than retaliation, “particularly where, as here, the other government is a longstanding open skies partner of the United States”.The carrier added: “To the extent Kalitta may be experiencing difficulties with its AMS operations, it is the result of Kalitta’s own failure to abide by AMS’s longstanding and well-known slot policies and requirements.“Kalitta cannot and should not be permitted to leverage its admitted failures at AMS into a successful argument for imposing restrictions on KLM or any other Dutch carrier.”KLM also denies receiving preferential treatment from the Dutch authorities, saying the claim was “patently false”.“In KLM’s experience, ACNL has been scrupulously even-handed in its treatment of airlines. The discrimination Kalitta alleges simply does not exist, and Kalitta’s false narrative provides no basis whatsoever for retaliation against KLM or its affiliates.”Interestingly, KLM also suggests Kalitta go to another airport, notably Maastricht, Cologne or Liege, and said it should not be the subject of sanctions when Kalitta has other options.Meanwhile the Dutch ministry of infrastructure and water management, on behalf of the government, submitted a filing which argues that in fact there is no correlation between traffic rights and the right to slots at Amsterdam, one basis of Kalitta’s claim. In addition, it says the government has no jurisdiction on the allocation of slots.ACNL submitted a letter arguing there were “some errors of fact in Kalitta’s complaint”.Kalitta has, however, garnered some support, perhaps surprisingly, from Americas carrier JetBlue – which apparently has European aspirations.The US carrier argued that the restriction of slots at Amsterdam “only serves to further deter the introduction of competitive services from new entrant carriers like JetBlue, and restrict US carrier rights under the US-EU Open Skies Agreement”.It added that antitrust immunity had been given to Deltam Virgin Atlantic and Air France-KLM, and thus the case “especially warrants review”.“JetBlue is keenly aware of the threat that immunised alliances can pose to the ability of small airlines to compete in the global marketplace. JetBlue strongly believes that airport access, including the availability of gates and slots to promote competition, must always be paramount when the department is carrying out its international aviation responsibilities.”It urged the DoT to “promptly approve Kalitta’s complaint and take steps to address the alleged withholding of slots at AMS”.last_img read more

Do consumer protection laws actually work in the automotive world?

first_imgKnow the Code: What your mechanic is really sayingIn some cases, familiarity really does breed contempt. Many smart customers develop solid long-term relationships with their mechanics and shops. Visit after visit, they and their service techs and counter staff get used to each other and sometimes, this can lead to problems.For example, you drop your ride off for a routine oil change and inspection and the tech notices a serious safety-related problem with, say, the brakes. They prepare an estimate and try to get hold of you with no success. Based on the fact that you’ve never questioned their judgment before and that you told them you needed your vehicle by the end of the day, they go ahead without notifying you. Yes they were wrong, and every consumer law of the land would back you up if you balk at paying, but you’d still likely end up with a broken relationship.If you’re concerned about the money you spend on vehicle maintenance and repairs – and really, who isn’t? – make sure you clearly indicate your need for notification regarding any work or cost when you drop the vehicle off and sign the repair order. Even a quick written note under your signature to that effect isn’t going overboard.Also, make sure you will be available if your shop needs to get in touch. If you plan on being in meetings all day, delegate your authorizing duties to another responsible person. When you get a call from the shop requesting approval for repairs, ask questions. Are the parts being used, new, remanufactured or used? What’s the warranty on the work? Can it be safely put off to another visit? What are the benefits? Make note of the estimated total and compare it to the final bill. Many jurisdictions require that final invoices be within 10 per cent of the original estimate.

Princess Diana’s humble little 1981 Ford Escort is up for auction An engagement gift from Prince Charles, the car is being sold by a Princess Di “superfan” Here’s a simple question about automotive consumer protection laws: Do they work in the real world?Let’s start with the fact that the majority of transactions between consumers and automotive service providers are completed properly and lead to relative satisfaction, as much as anyone can be satisfied with spending money on a product they seldom understand. But in those rare cases where things go off the rail, there are consumer laws and regulations to protect us, right? We really don’t have to worry about such matters, do we?With auto repairs, as in most things in life, the devil really can be in the details, and just knowing your rights really isn’t enough. Every jurisdiction in the country has some sort of auto-repair specific consumer protection legislation. These rules and regulations speak to the need for consumers to be provided with written estimates and upfront pricing on the preparation of such documents, as well as clear indications on the repair invoice of parts and labour details. They also cover the information that must appear on each repair order and final invoice. Things like VINs, in-and-out mileage recordings, sequential document numbering, and the like. But do we really need all this detail, especially for small and routine services?If you frequent a smaller shop for oil changes and other minor items, and that facility uses hand-written invoices without all the details required by law, you may run into problems if your automaker requires proof of maintenance for a warranty repair. If your invoices don’t meet the minimum requirement regarding VINs, detailed part descriptions and labour operations, you can be denied warranty coverage. If you’re in doubt, simply compare the detail on your shop’s repair orders and invoices to one you received from your authorized dealership service department.RELATEDlast_img read more

$1 million gift to BioFrontiers Institute to aid graduate students

first_imgThe University of Colorado’s BioFrontiers Institute has received a $1 million gift from John F. Milligan and Kathryn Bradford-Milligan of Hillsborough, California to establish a fund for graduate students participating in an interdisciplinary bioscience program.The new endowment, the Olke C. Uhlenbeck Endowed Graduate Fund, will support first-year graduate students pursuing doctorates in one of nine academic departments and includes additional coursework in interdisciplinary bioscience. The fellowship is intended to fund each recipient for a two-year period for roughly $55,000 and is expected to be awarded every other year beginning in fall 2016.The funding will support tuition and stipend costs for first-year graduate students pursuing doctoral degrees as part of the BioFrontiers IQ Biology PhD Certificate program.Milligan is president and CEO of the California-based Gilead Sciences Inc. With operations in North America, Europe, Asia and Australia, the biopharmaceutical company is focused on discovering, developing and commercializing therapeutics and advancing the care of patients suffering from life-threatening diseases worldwide.Milligan spent two years of his doctoral studies in Uhlenbeck’s lab at CU Boulder after it was moved from the University of Illinois in 1986. Milligan subsequently joined Gilead Sciences as a research scientist.Uhlenbeck, an internationally known biochemist, spent 16 years at CU Boulder at a time when the university was becoming a leader in RNA research. He was elected into the National Academy of Sciences in 1993 and is a founding member of the RNA Society, which publishes the scientific journal RNA.DNA, or deoxyribonucleic acid, acts like a blueprint of biological guidelines that a living organism must follow to exist and remain functional. RNA, or ribonucleic acid, helps carry out the blueprint guidelines.Uhlenbeck was recruited to chair CU Boulder’s biochemistry division in 1986. He agreed to come on the condition that CU’s internationally known RNA research groups meet together on a regular basis to share their research.The CU Boulder RNA Club eventually grew to more than 100 faculty members, students and industry scientists sharing what they were discovering about RNA, a group that continues to thrive on campus three decades later. The interactive meetings helped CU Boulder to grow in its RNA research dominance that supported the launch of a number of Boulder biotechnology startups, including Ribozyme Pharmaceuticals Inc. and NeXstar Pharmaceuticals Inc.“I really value the time I spent at CU Boulder with Olke,” said Milligan. “I appreciate the conversations we had as I developed into a scientist. He also taught me to be a leader by showing me what it meant to be engaged in research and intellectually curious.”Milligan said he also is a fan of the IQ Biology program at BioFrontiers because it exposes graduate students to other aspects of the biological sciences, from writing computer code and learning applied math to focusing on professional development. All are skills important to any career, whether in industry or academia, Milligan said.Distinguished Professor Tom Cech, director of the BioFrontiers Institute, will participate in selecting the first Uhlenbeck Fellow from the incoming class of IQ Biology students this fall. Cech shared the 1989 Nobel Prize in chemistry for his discovery that RNA in living cells is not only a molecule of heredity but also can function as a catalyst.At the BioFrontiers Institute researchers from the life sciences, physical sciences, computer science and engineering are working together to uncover new knowledge at the frontiers of science and partnering with industry to make their discoveries relevant.
