Pillot flying hours to be put to vote in EP

MEPs will vote on proposals by the European Commission to tighten and standardise flight time limits for pilots across the European Union.
Pilots unions, including the Irish pilots body IALPA - have said the new rules will actually increase the amount of time pilots have to fly in some member states.
The European Commission argues the unions are distorting the proposal to make flight times seem longer than they are, in order to push for even lower limits.
