Air Line Pilots Association, International v. Chao

After lengthy, complicated process, the feds grant Irish airline Norwegian Air a permit to operate in the U.S. (We have treaty obligations with Europe to allow such flights.) U.S. and European airline employees’ unions sue the feds: Norwegian Air doesn’t pay its staff enough; it’s not in the public interest to allow the low-cost airline to operate. D.C. Circuit: Case dismissed. Judge Sentelle, concurring: And, but for precedent with which I disagree, should never have been allowed in court.
