This article presents information on the various developments in the airlines industry. One of them is the controversy over who gets to serve Linate Airport, Linate, Italy, located 6 minutes from Milan's city center, and who is relegated to Malpensa Airport 29 minutes. Italy turned down American for Linate service with British Airways through London Heathrow Airport, the U.S. carriers complain, while United received a chilly reception and did not bother to apply for Linate code shares with British Midland Airways Ltd. via Heathrow and Lufthansa Airlines via Frankfurt. The special treatment of premier airline passengers, in terms of security, privacy and amenities, is spreading.
