Texas Lawmakers Blast U.S.-India Agreement
Members of the Texas congressional delegation assailed yesterday a key provision in the U.S.-India agreement permitting Air-India to operate fifth-freedom service from London Heathrow to Chicago and Washington. "I strongly oppose DOT giving access to Heathrow to Air-India, a foreign carrier," said Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison at a news conference in Washington. "The Department of Transportation is not being even-handed," she added, noting the long effort of the Texas delegation to get nonstop access to Heathrow from Houston or Dallas.
