London Landing Rights Crucial to 2 Airlines:...

From Times Staff and Wire Reports

London Landing Rights Crucial to 2 Airlines: British and U.S. aviation officials were to resume discussions today in Washington over landing rights at London’s Heathrow Airport. The discussions will be crucial for the financially battered carriers, Pan American World Airways and Trans World Airlines. Pan Am has agreed to sell prized London routes to United Airlines; TWA has agreed to sell to American Airlines. The British government has so far refused to let the weaker carriers transfer their rights to land at Heathrow. Should the U.S. and British negotiators fail to find a way to transfer the Heathrow rights, both carriers would be in grave jeopardy, analysts said.
