American Airlines Seeks to Delay Service from New York to Haneda

American Airlines is seeking to delay its flights between New York and Haneda airport in Tokyo, according to the Associated Press. The AP is reporting that the airline is asking for an extra month before beginning its service.

The flights were supposed to begin operating as of January 31, but American says that February is the slowest month for travel between the U.S. and Tokyo, and feels that a start as of March 1 would be more lucrative.

Delta Air Lines, which was also set to start the same route at the end of January, was given permission to extend its deadline back in the fall. It will begin operating service as of February 19.
