This offer applies only to members of the Dividend Miles frequent flier loyalty program who purchase and fly as a passenger on eligible published fare tickets.

“I find the additions of these routes very interesting given they were all given up to DL as part of the swap”, posted FlyerTalk member gottigotti. “Kind of a brilliant ploy on Parker’s part if he was thinking as far ahead as it seems: get slots at DCA at the expense of a few routes/slots/gates into LGA; acquire AA with their slots/gates; add back the highly profitable routes you just swapped. DL is left without the capacity at DCA while US is almost back to where they were at LGA.”

The swapping of slots at LaGuardia Airport was approved by the Department of Justice of the United States in 2011 — greater than a year before the announcement of the merger on February 14, 2013 between American Airlines and US Airways.

Could Doug Parker — who was the chief executive officer of US Airways back in 2011 and current chief executive officer of American Airlines — have foreseen what gottigotti is suggesting? Was Delta Air Lines short-changed in the swapping of slots — gates, in other words — at LaGuardia Airport with US Airways?
