U.S. greenlights Norwegian Air flights in blow to U.S. industry

The order finalized a tentative ruling the department made in April and came days after the European Commission formally filed for arbitration over Norwegian's request. U.S. airlines and unions have said the subsidiary, Norwegian Air International, would undermine U.S. wages and working standards, claims Norwegian has dismissed. The accusations have come as a fare war has escalated over the Atlantic, forcing large and established airlines to consider selling cheaper fares with more restrictions and redesigning cabins to win budget-conscious travellers back from Norwegian.
