Quoting mah4546 (Reply 1): July would be a good time to expect an answer.
The problem is that the requirements are to begin service by the end of October. And because of the the time required to set up a new destination the DOT was supposed to get the answer out ASAP; July would be an almost impossibly late answer. Their original comments were to expect an answer by the end of this month, which is why I'm asking if anyone has heard otherwise.
One smooth landing is skill. Two in a row is luck. Three in a row and someone is lying.

I think it comes down to whether or not UA and CO merge. If they don't, I would think we would see UA (SFO), HA (HNL), DL (SEA) and CO (EWR). But if they do, then AA would get JFK in lieu of CO to EWR. I think service from HND to two major West Coast hubs, Hawaii, and New York is probably what the DOT would like to see.
