FAA Hands Out Slot Subsidy To Delta, American and United

  • The US will extend slot waivers at New York JFK, LaGuardia and Washington National through October.
  • United, Delta, and American asked for this jointly, to protect their turf without actually having to fly full schedules.
  • Among other reasons for agreeing, the FAA cites “global vaccination rates” as well as “continued unpredictability of [international] travel restrictions” and “the disparity between demand for domestic air travel and demand for international air travel” despite the fact that only one of the three slot-controlled airports in the US (New York JFK) carries much international traffic at all.
