    U.S. airlines face new competition from overseas

    WASHINGTON — In courts in Italy and Washington and in the halls of Congress, America’s largest airlines are pressing for a leg up against increasingly aggressive competition from carriers based in the Middle East and Asia.

    The competition presents a slate of novel challenges for Doug Parker and the other former US Airways executives now running American Airlines Group, newly minted as the largest airline in the world. US Airways had largely stayed out of the debate.

    “They’re a real threat,” Parker said in an interview with The Associated Press this month. “This is a global business and one where we have to compete globally. We can’t ignore any global threat, and we can’t be asked to compete on different terms.”

    these other airlines are a real threat because they offer a vastly better product with service that is usually superior

    :) I can't think of one experience flying on a foreign carrier where the air crew didn't treat passengers with respect, try their best to help out with any issues that may have occurred, and didn't thank passengers for flying with them! You bet that foreign carriers are a threat to many US airlines! ;)
