Under pressure from United Continental, Delta Air Lines says it will resume service to Tokyo's close-in Haneda Airport in June. Both Delta and American Airlines suspended Haneda service as demand dropped following Japan's March 11 earthquake, and regulations stipulate that takeoff and landing slots may be awarded to other carriers if service is not resumed within 90 days. Last year, United Continental lost out in a four-way contest for slots at Haneda, which is closer to downtown Tokyo than Narita, Japan's main international airport.
