The French government has rejected requests to allow airlines based in the UAE to obtain more landing slots at Paris, according to a report.

Newswire Zawya Dow Jones quoted a unsourced report in the French La Tribune newspaper saying that Etihad Airways, Emirates and low-cost operator Air Arabia wanted a total of seven new slots.

The French authorities only agreed to one new landing slot, between Dubai and the French city of Lyon, the report added.

Well, the only way to tackle this is to treat the French or any others the same way - they will soon come to their senses.

looks like you do not know how they think here in this country. their only aim in life is to bring westerns and Europeans into this country, not the other way round. and if they were going to follow this method that you have suggested, they would have done it with the subject of issuing visas, they wouldn't have western nationalities into this country if their countries wouldn't give in-airport-visa as UAE is doing now.

The French is always an exception in the world. They complain about lot of nonsense things. Have the balls to do real business and stop acting like a chicken!
