Abstract

Much ink has been spilled over Ryanair's protracted battle to obtain regulatory approval for its attempted takeover of Aer Lingus. A recent judgment from the UK Court of Appeal is the latest instalment and provides some interesting views on the nature of the burdens of fairness on competition authorities in proceeding with long and complex analyses of competitive situations, but also some intriguing views on the underlying objectives of EU competition law and the nature of the duty of loyal cooperation under EU law.
