China Route Authority Decision Overdue?

I thought I heard that the NW/CO/AA/UA China route authority decision would be coming in December. For a flight starting in April, it seems we are getting a little close to the commencement date.

What do you think the announcement date delay means? Are the contending airlines doing a lot of last minute convincing? Did AA's recent change to their application cause the delay? Is the DOT having a difficult time deciding?

Overdue? You think?

We want to start EWR-PVG in March. I don't think the DOT is having a hard time deciding, as much as they are seeing what goes on with proposed talks with airlines and merger talk.

Time will ultimately tell. Just hopefully sooner than later.

Who is making the decision on the route, there is the answer to your question, but I do agree tis past time for the announcement.

The AA debacle probably slowed things down a week. Throw in the long weekend and Gerald Ford's death (another workday gone), and an announcement on Friday is probably optimistic. I would expect the decision no later than sometime next week.

Merger talks should surely not delay a decision by the DOT. I wish they would just get on with it and put us all out of our misery..........enough already!
