Emirates and the other airlines targeted by the U.S. allegations have not been given a fair chance to respond to a report that Clark said took two years to compile, the executive said.Clark said Emirates has added value to the U.S. cities it serves with "very reasonable" fares and connections that are more favorable than those provided by his U.S. competitors.U.S. carriers including American Airlines Group Inc., United Airlines Inc. and Delta Air Lines Inc. should review their long-haul philosophy instead of trying to roll back the advancements in connectivity that Emirates and its Gulf counterparts have established in recent years, Clark said.Emirates' existing fleet of A380s uses the competing powerplant by General Electric Co. and United Technologies Corp., which Clark said are unlikely to re-engine.
