WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The United States is still reviewing U.S. airlines' subsidy allegations over what they say are subsidies being provided to three Gulf airlines, the State Department said on Friday following U.S. Secretary Of State John Kerry's meeting with the chief executives of two U.S. airlines.

On Thursday, Kerry met with the CEOs of American Airlines and Delta Airlines at their request to discuss their concerns and recommendations for government, the State Department said.
