    Delta Would Purchase 256 LGA Slots from US Airways - 84 DCA Slots Would Transfer from Delta to US Airways - Sao Paulo Operating Frequencies Would Turn Over to US Airways at a Future Date - Significant Increases in LCC Competition at Both Airports Since DOT's Final Order Alone Should Alleviate Any Lingering Competitive Issues

    Anyway you could copy the text of the filing in the forum for us to read as the website requires a password?

    I cannot copy the DAF story because it is limited distribution. I should have entered this link before. Sorry!

    Just keep in mind that the AFA story is from aug 2009. Some things have changed (timing, split operation, tokyo rights and possibly ILM.)

    Good points. If they are successful this time more things could change and probably will. BTW, DL giving up GRU frequency seems odd given the loads and yields on virtually all GRU flights but DL and G3 have had an extensive codeshare arrangement since last July and they're still expecting to use BSB as their "hub" according to them, probably closer to a focus city, so giving up GRU slots to somebody harmless like US may seem to be a good deal to DL. Their announcement of last year is here:
