Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Landing is only one part of it. Most transatlantic flights to and from the continent fly over British airspace. Without any agreement, the chaos would be enormous.

AFAIK the Blueskies Agreement, which regulates EU airlines, applies restrictions primarily on landing rights, not overflight rights. Which is not to say the UK might not try to muddy the waters with retaliatory measures... Not much reaches the UK from the US without overflying Irish airspace either, although I suppose a route over the North pole would be possible...
