Delta relinquishes Detroit-Haneda slot

Due to poor demand, Delta Air Lines has decided to drop its daily Detroit to Tokyo Haneda service and replace it with a Seattle- Haneda service.

United Airlines and Hawaiian Airlines have both submitted request to the US Department of Transportation to take up the Detroit slot pairs.
United stated that because Delta Air Lines “failed to deliver on the commitments in its Haneda service proposal,” it wants one daily pair of Haneda combination slots to begin service from San Francisco. “United is ready, willing and able to commence daily nonstop San Francisco-Haneda service within 90 days of the Department’s allocation,” it said in a DOT filing. “United is the only U.S. combination carrier serving Japan and not permitted to operate into Haneda with its own metal.”
American Airlines has stated that it does not object to Delta’s request “provided that all carriers holding Haneda slots are granted equivalent relief.”
