American Airlines announced yesterday that it’s adding four new non-stop flights out of Miami: Austin and San Antonio, Tx; Kansas City, Mo.; and Salt Lake City, Ut. Tickets for these new non-stops go on sale October 5, 2014 but service doesn’t start until March 5, 2015.

Meanwhile, American Airlines also filed with the US Department of Transportation on Thursday for the rights to take over some of Delta’s service to Tokyo’s closer-in Haneda airport.

In the filing, it said that Delta is not using its service from Seattle effectively. American says that Delta is only planning to serve the Seattle-Haneda route only 17 times between now and the end of March, instead of the 182 possible days.

“American vigorously opposes any use of these valuable Haneda rights on a seasonal basis, and we stand ready to use them fully on a year-round basis,” American Airlines said in the filing. “The Department should not allow Delta to squander these valuable frequencies.”

American said if they capture the slot, they would offer daily non-stop service from LAX to HND. Both Delta Airlines and All Nippon Airways already offer non-stop service from LAX to HND.

  1. Thanks for the heads-up! I’ve had Chicago Midway and Chicago O’Hare on my mind all week, and I just associate being closer-in, like MDW and HND, being smaller, where by being further out, it’s bigger — but it’s not! Thanks again!

  2. I would prefer to see a DFW-HND over LAX. Nobody serves DFW-HND direct. DFW is a bigger AA hub. Service out of LAX seems to make less sense because Delta, United and ANA already serve HND non-stop from there.
