EU's reaction too tentative

The agreement reached by EU transport ministers to reduce the no-fly restrictions should not be allowed to gloss over the EU's hesitant approach, writes the business paper Il Sole 24 Ore: "The agreement is clearly once again the expression of a do-it-yourself initiative by certain states and not the result of a harmonious, coordinated Europe policy. ... The priority of flight safety is not the issue here. ... While millions of Europeans are stuck at airports, the EU has yet again been exposed as the prisoner of its own strict regulations and a political vacuum. ... Its inflexibility and stubborn insistence on relying on the forecasts of the British Met Office [the UK's weather forecast service] without seeing the need to adopt extraordinary control measures reflects the chasm that exists between the hesitant decisions from Brussels and the real lives of European citizens and companies."
