I think the title of the thread should have said "EU on track to approve..." or something of the sort.
The title of the thread is perfectly fine. The language use and style of coverage (i.e. reporting approval before finalised) is totally inkeeping with standard reporting of such matters.

Sorry guys, whilst an approval is likely, the European Commission are currently merely market testing the commitments put forward by AA, BA and IB. If they get new comments (which I think is unlikely though as all interested parties should have had enough time to make their objections known), they might require changes to the commitments. I would expect it to take a few more months until final approval.

And so that you don't need to rely on newspapers misinterpreting the facts, here are the original press release of the European Commission and the actual text of the commitments:
