Emirates chief says US row won't 'end in tears'

The chief executive of Emirates airline said he does not believe an escalating dispute between US and Middle Eastern carriers over government subsidies will "end in tears".

Sir Tim Clark told the BBC's Samira Hussain he thought the US government would step in and "inject a degree of sanity" in the row.

US airlines have asked the government to investigate what they claim are unfair subsidies given to Emirates, Qatar Airways and Etihad.

The airlines have denied receiving aid.
