The Open Skies treaty between the U.S. and Europe has resulted in U.S. carriers shifting flights to London's Heathrow Airport, the Wall Street Journal's Scott McCartney writes. However, he writes that the treaty has resulted in few new flights and that fares have increased. McCartney also notes that European and U.S. carriers will enter a second phase of Open Skies next year and will start pushing to relax a rule that limits ownership of U.S. carriers.
