I understand from reliable sources that the PNR Directive does not apply to charter flights (as used by holiday companies) - whioh is very surprising, as it undermines the security case for the PNR Directive.


If the new EU-US PNR agreement obliges airline carriers to hand over 40 fields of PNR data, then effectively the airline carriers are being obliged to collect these 40 pieces of data.

What if one of these pieces of data is in breach of the 1995 data protection directive, say, on the grounds of revealing an individual's ethnicity or sexual orientation?

Are the airlines then in an impossible legal position? Isn't this a conflict of law?
