     Still don't know what you are talking about. Delta is no longer hedging fuel. 
     
     I guess Air China and Hainan are now a part of the group being "punished" "objective" indeed 

     
     life goes that way sometimes. 
     
    Who's upset? 
     
    You are the last person who needs to comment at all on being objective. 
     
    You post an opinion piece that both Delta and parade organizers have said is false but Delta is still the bad guy. 
     
    So if you are going to start tossing stones, might want to get out of that glass house.

    So tell us (ALL) then, why DL seems to be in the news virtually every day ?
    I can't wait until the BOO - HOO(ing) comes flowing out of ATL over the Haneda awards !

    You might want to look at the news daily before you open your big mouth. 
     
    All of the airlines are in the news everyday. I could drop down to your level and post plenty of links, but I honestly don't feel like and I'm not a child.

    'robbed', you're probably very well right, AND from a fairness standpoint, it would be the right thing to do.
    However, DL has tried to JERK the DOT (and the Japanese equivalent) Around, too many times to the point that they've become 'Persona non Grata.'
    I'll be very surprised if DL gets LAX or SEA, and of those two, I'll be SHOCKED if they get LAX ! UA is a 'no brainer', meaning SFO or ORD.

    DL did not ask for SEA; UA did not ask for ORD.

    AA applied for LAX and DFW. UA applied for SFO and EWR. DL applied for LAX, MSP and ATL.

    NHBB, Delta already has an LAX to Haneda flight.  It's just an inconvenient departure and arrival time--middle of the night; no public transportation into Tokyo.  They are requesting and (more than likely getting) one of the new daytime arrival slots to replace their current flight.  I doubt they will get an Atlanta departure.  I can't imagine there would be that much demand from ATL.  AA will also get an LAX departure with a daytime arrival.  And, UA will get an SFO departure, convenient arrival time.
     
    Now, your anti-Delta tirades have become as tiresome as World Traveler's "Delta Uber Alles" posts used to be.  Give it a rest.  Delta is a good airline.  The fact that it is mostly non-union isn't really any of your business or mine.  I don't understand it either, but...THEIR EMPLOYEES WERE GIVEN THE OPPORTUNITY TO VOTE FOR REPRESENTATION.  They voted against having representation.  (The flight attendants have voted no on more than one occasion that I know of.)  It's the way democracy works.  Majority rules.  Please go find something else to post about.  Thanks.

    We'll gitcha next time.   :lol:  My friend who is a DL purser (Onboard Service Leader?) can't vote no forever.  (Her supervisor has told her at least twice that "Yes, the flight attendants need a union, but not right now." )
