D.O.T. DECIDES IN FAVOR OF IBERIA OVER AMERICAN AIRLINES

 D.O.T. DECIDES IN FAVOR OF IBERIA OVER AMERICAN AIRLINES
 MIAMI, Sept. 4 /PRNewswire/ -- Iberia Airlines of Spain announced today that the Department of Transportation (D.O.T.) has decided in favor of Iberia Airlines of Spain in the outcome of a filing made against Iberia by American Airlines. American was seeking revocation of the permit which enables the Spanish airline to operate scheduled service to points in Latin America and the Caribbean from the United States. Iberia is the only foreign airline to have obtained these rights through the bilateral agreement signed with the United States in May 1991.
 American Airlines, had requested that the permit given to Iberia be revoked, alleging that BINTER and AVIACO which are wholly owned domestic subsidiaries of Iberia, do not participate in SABRE, the CRS system owned by American Airlines.
 The DOT has stated that the general relations of civil aviation between both governments are positive and that the Spanish Government has fulfilled its bilateral obligations, by allowing Continental Airlines, Delta Airlines, Trans World Airlines, American Airlines and United Airlines to operate regularly scheduled service to Spain.
 The DOT disregarded the allegations made by American Airlines and ratified by this ruling, its previous decision to grant Iberia operational permits to carry on the international services from the hub in Miami.
 From its hub in Miami, where Iberia's widebodies from Spain arrive, smaller aircraft have been granted permission by the U.S. Government, under the terms of the bilateral agreement reached last year, to transport passengers on to Cancun, Guatemala City, San Salvador, Managua, San Jose, Panama City, Santo Domingo and Lima.
