B6 LGB-SMF: Where Did The Slots Come From?

Thu Mar 09, 2006 10:29 am

I was wondering where the slots for this came from. Was there a reduction in service elsewhere or was B6 awarded the slots that were up for grabs after AA pulled out? One was guaranteed to be B6s, and then there were 4 left. I wonder of B6 and AS split them.

I don't know for sure, but my guess is that it comes from the slots AA is abandoning with their DFW-LGB pullout in early April.

They are from AA.

JetBlue will be using two daily flight slots in Long Beach that are being abandoned by American Airlines. American, which at one time had up to eight daily flights out of Long Beach, is ending the last of its current four flights from the city to Dallas/Fort Worth on April 2.

The city is distributing the four American slots to JetBlue, Alaska Airlines and FedEx, airport officials said.

and I also believe that the 3rd flight comes from the reduction of LAS service
