“European Union officials said Monday they were in talks with the United States to beef up trans-Atlantic Planetravel security measures, including the possible expanded use of air marshals on flights to and from the U.S.

The measures are related to a new U.S. visa-waiver law that could also see EU countries being pushed to provide more data on passengers on trans-Atlantic flights — or flights that fly over the U.S. but don’t land there. An agreement on information-sharing was part of a deal the 27-nation union and the U.S. signed last July.” (Business Week)
