Below is Delta’s statement regarding the agreement signed today by the U.S. and Japanese governments to open just 10 daytime slots at Tokyo-Haneda airport for trans-Pacific operations – five for U.S. carriers and five for Japanese carriers – in addition to one new nighttime slot each.

"Delta is deeply disappointed with the final agreement reached today between the U.S. and Japanese governments to incrementally open the Tokyo-Haneda airport. Tokyo-Haneda will remain a severely restricted airport with limited competition. Delta is committed to doing our best to maintain the viability of our current Asian route structure and our Tokyo-Narita hub for as long as possible, recognizing that commercial impacts are imminent. Delta will make a careful assessment and adjust our network accordingly."

- Peter Carter, Executive Vice President – Chief Legal Officer
