  1. brett – re haneda slots, why do you think UA didn’t throw in for an LAX run? just UA being stupid (again)? since DL got the LAX run along w/ DTW and AA got JFK/NY area, both of which also applied for the LAX run, it’s not unreasonable to assume that UA would have been a reasonable choice for LAX in order to give one spot to each of four different airlines.

    1. San Francisco has always been United’s main Asian gateway, so that makes sense. Maybe they should also have asked for LAX, but I think that the DOT really seems to be holding it against them since they already work with ANA.
