Tokyo agreement threatens Delta's only nonstop flight to Asia from MSP


Efforts to protect the only nonstop flight between Minnesota and Asia suffered a severe setback Thursday, as the United States and Japan agreed on a deal that Delta Air Lines has warned could imperil its Minneapolis-Tokyo service.

The agreement provides for more daytime landing slots for trans-Pacific flights at Tokyo’s Haneda Airport, according to a release from the U.S. Embassy in Japan. Delta flies to Narita International Airport, 46 miles from downtown, and executives have said the new plan favors rivals American and United airlines.
