Delta: Hey, Give Us Some National Slots
ATLANTA (TheStreet) -- If somebody is going to get divested slots at Washington Reagan National Airport following the merger of US Airways
"Delta welcomes the settlement agreement and looks forward to the opportunity to acquire slots that will be divested under the agreement, particularly at Washington-Reagan National Airport," the carrier said Tuesday.
"Delta is the airline best positioned to continue competitive nonstop flights from Reagan National to small- and mid-sized cities that could otherwise see service reduced or eliminated, which should be a strong consideration in the divestiture."
US Airways and American have agreed to divest 52 National slot pairs in order to reach a settlement with the Department of Justice, which had sued to block the merger.
