14 CFR 241.21 (g) establishes four separate entities for submitting prescribed reports by United States (U.S.) scheduled
service carriers. They are Domestic, Latin America, Atlantic, and Pacific. The Domestic entity is the only one specifically
defined in the Part 241.21 (g). The other entities are defined in general terms:
operations via the Atlantic Ocean - Atlantic entity,
operations via the Pacific Ocean - Pacific entity, and
operations in Latin American - Latin American entity.
The Latin American entity can be defined fairly easily. However, with around-the-world operations, the break-up of the former Soviet Union, and the possible increase in transpolar operations between this country and Asia and Europe, a clearly defined separation between the Pacific and Atlantic entities is needed, if data are to be reported on a uniform basis.
The following division between the Atlantic and Pacific entity is established for Form 41 reporting purposes.
Questions concerning this directive should be addressed to Mr. Jerold Coffee in care of this office or by telephone at (202) 366-4409.
This action is taken under authority delegated in Section 385.27 (b) of DOT's Organization Regulations. Air carriers entitled to petition for review of this directive under CFR 385.50 et seq may file such petitions by September 3, 1993. Unless petitions are filed by that date, this directive shall become effective on January 1, 1994.
