United calls on DoT to take away Tokyo Haneda slot from Delta or Hawaiian

United Airlines called on the US Department of Transportation (DoT) to strip one of two slots awarded to Delta Air Lines or the one awarded to Hawaiian Airlines for services to Tokyo Haneda Airport, to allow United to launch San Francisco-Tokyo Haneda service (Dow Jones, 19-May-2010). Continental Airlines also failed to receive a slot and asked to be considered a reserve if one of the carriers fails to launch proposed services to the destination. United also stated it has provided competition authorities with further information, as part of Star Alliance members' application for anti-trust immunity on routes between the US and Japan.
