    with regard to, in term of, in relation to

    Hi,

    Question:
    Do in terms of / with regard to / in relation to have the same meaning in my sentence?

    Sentence:

    Unless there are problems in terms of / with regard to / in relation to air traffic control, a Korean flag carrier is free to do anything within our own air space.

    Thanks

    "In terms of" doesn't work here, for me. I'm also not certain what the sentence means. Couldn't it be phrased more clearly? What do you mean by "problems with air traffic control"?
    You could mean:
    "Unless air traffic control is nonfunctional/down ..."
    "Unless air traffic control has forbidden/outlawed it ..."
    "Unless air traffic control isn't sure whether it's a good idea ..."
    "Unless air traffic control is understaffed ..."

    All of those terms you've used are often used to avoid writing a more specific and comprehensible sentence.
