BRAVO US DOT! No to holding onto unused authority

The US Dept of Transportation has for once been reading the tea leaves correctly and decided it would be un-catholic to let the holders of unused International Route Authority hold onto that while they tried to recover.

There are several urgent items out there.

US Airways new route authority to China.
United’s Moscow route and the withdrawl of Denver London
Northwest’s suspension of several European routes.

Of course with Open Skies the EU authority is not required but for Latam, Asia based routes this could be an interesting game.

Let’s see what happens next
