EU rejects US demands on air data

The chief European Union neogotiator Friday rejected U.S. demands to exchange additional air passanger data and said he expected to need until the Sept. 30 deadline to reach an interim deal.“We still have a few weeks left and we’re going to use all the time we have,” Jonathan Faull, director general for US Justice and Home Affairs told Dow Jones news wire.

The Commission and the U.S. agreed in 2004 that airlines would turn over 34 pieces of information about each passenger flying from Europe to the U.S. - including name, address and credit card details - within 15 minutes of departure.
