Delta wants in on gates American, US Airways have given up

If American Airlines can’t have them, maybe Delta Air Lines can.
The Atlanta-based airline said it plans to add 18 daily nonstop flights to five destinations from Dallas Love Field in October 2014.


Delta's planned expansion will connect Love Field with new nonstop service to New York-LaGuardia, Los Angeles, Detroit, and Minneapolis-St. Paul. Delta also will add two daily flights to its existing Atlanta service.
But there’s a hitch. American Airlines and US Airways are giving up the gates to satisfy the Justice Department’s objections to the merger between the two airlines. The Justice Department wants those gates to go to low-cost carriers, not carriers like Delta. Delta officials want the Department of Justice to make those slots available to all airlines.
 

"Our new service at Dallas Love Field means more competition and options for North Texas travelers, and flights to our international hubs will provide convenient connections to international destinations in Asia, Europe, Latin America and Africa," said Bob Cortelyou, Delta's senior vice president - Network Planning. "Dallas/Fort Worth is a top business market and critical to our strategy of connecting the world's leading cities for business and commerce." - Robert Francis
