I agree with the people that say CO
will get the slots; NYC to China doens't have any US carrier. I'm also surprised that AA
doesn't apply to fly from JFK
would probably get the rights anyway.
For the 2006 case, it's a bit more difficult but I say DL
will get it since there's no service from ATL
or from the Souteastern US to China. AA
should applied for DFW
and if they do that I think AA
has a good chance of getting starting service.
As long as AA
keeps insisting ORD
, I think that they will have to wait to 2007 or later for service. ORD
could probably support more than one carrier but the "public benefit" would be greater with service from a city without any current US carrier China service. I think they should start ORD
next year as a way of getting back into the mainland Asia market.
When is the decision expected ?
will start ORD
service if AA
doesn't get the rights ?
