The Long Beach city council is set to approve an agreement today over control of slots at LGB. The settlement calls for JetBlue to return 5 slots with 3 going to AA and 2 going to Alaska. If at any time before 1/1/2009 AA or AS stops using their new slots they immediately will go back to JB.

The agreement also calls for new noise studies at LGB to determine if cumulative noise levels exceed that allowed in the airport's "noise budget". If they do not, then additional slots above the 41 mainline limit may be created.

The noise budget was a key part of the original LGB noise agreement. A cumulative allowable noise level was determined. Then using average noise levels caused by aircraft at the time (1980s) it was decided that 41 slots was the maximum that could operate without exceeding the "budget".

If the city of Long Beach approves the agreement today it then goes to the FAA for final approval.

does this mean QX will end the RJ flights and go mainline?

According to the article, no one is sure if AS would convert the RJ flights to mainline. Anyone heard any inside info?

smart move by JB. Not sure if AA will be dumping a lot of new flights into LGB based on financial condition. guess anything is possible but it seems JB may have made a great decision taking in to account the timing and state of AA. if AA does not activate slots do they revert to JB till '09?

Trey,

It appears that this gives AA long-term control of slots that it is currently using. Back in June AA was given 4 slots on a temporary basis since JB was not using them all. That agreement was due to end in March. My understanding is that this allows AA to keep 3 and avoid the March deadline, as long as they keep using them.

The city council approved the agreement last night. Next step is FAA approval, which needs to be received by February 28, otherwise this agreement will not be put into force.
