Delta: Hey, Give Us Some National Slots

ATLANTA ( TheStreet) -- If somebody is going to get divested slots at Washington Reagan National Airport following the merger of US Airways (LCC) and American (AAMRQ), why shouldn't it be Delta (DAL - Get Report)?

"Delta welcomes the settlement agreement and looks forward to the opportunity to acquire slots that will be divested under the agreement, particularly at Washington-Reagan National Airport," the carrier said Tuesday.

"Delta is the airline best positioned to continue competitive nonstop flights from Reagan National to small- and mid-sized cities that could otherwise see service reduced or eliminated, which should be a strong consideration in the divestiture."

US Airways and American have agreed to divest 52 National slot pairs in order to reach a settlement with the Department of Justice, which had sued to block the merger.

Besides Delta, Southwest (LUV) and JetBlue (JBLU) also have expressed interested in divested slots at National.
