Emirates rejects apology issued by Delta Air Lines linking Gulf carriers to 911 attacks

DUBAI, 19th February, 2015 (WAM) — Emirates has rejected the apology issued by Delta Air Lines in response to comments made by its CEO on Monday 16th February, which intimated a link between the Gulf carriers and the 911 attacks.

A spokesperson for the Emirates has issued the following statement, “Emirates rejects the apology issued by Delta Air Lines in response to the comments made by its CEO on Monday 16th February, which intimated a link between the Gulf carriers and the 911 attacks. We believe that the statements made this week by Mr. Anderson were deliberately crafted and delivered for specific effect. This brings into question his credibility as a CEO of a US public listed company, as well as the integrity of the submission which his airline has submitted to the US authorities”.
