Two for the Road
Long Beach Airport Award of Seven Permanent Flight Slots – Long Beach Airport
The slots that JetBlue abandoned have been awarded with Delta and Southwest each picking up three while Hawaiian picked up one. Slot usage rules are suspended into late October, so this doesn’t mean much now, but it’s still odd. Southwest and JetBlue now are tied for the most slots with 17 each. Delta has a whopping 12. What the heck is it going to do with those other than prevent Southwest from going? And Hawaiian? I’ll be surprised if that airline comes back at all, let alone uses two slots.
