As tensions continue to escalate between the United States and China,
the US Department of Transportation (DOT)
has accused the Chinese government of barring US airlines from resuming operations there.

It has also ordered four Chinese carriers to file detailed schedules with the US government.

The docket served on May 22 accuses Beijing of a
“failure [...] to permit US carriers to exercise the full extent of their bilateral right
to conduct scheduled passenger air services to China.”

The DOT stopped short of placing restrictions on Chinese airlines but demanded that
Air China, Capital Airlines (China), China Eastern Airlines, China Southern Airlines, Hainan Airlines, Sichuan Airlines, and Xiamen Airlines

file by May 27 all of their existing and proposed schedules, including codeshares, to any point or points in the United States.
This must include the type of equipment, frequencies, days of operation, the airport served at each point,
and arrival and departure times.

While Chinese airlines have continued flights to the USA,
US carriers had stopped theirs by March 12.

Delta Air Lines and United Airlines now plan to resume flights to China in June 2020, the order noted,
but “neither carrier has received a response” from the Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC).

The department stressed in another statement that it had
“protested this situation to the Chinese authorities, repeatedly objecting to China’s failure to let US carriers fully exercise their rights,
[denying] US carriers their right to compete on a fair and equal basis with Chinese carriers,”
adding that the situation was “critical.”

With 1.72 million confirmed covid-19 cases in the US, I can understand why China is reluctant to receive American passengers right now...
