US Airways CEO Doug Parker warned that forcing the new American Airlines to give up slots at Reagan National Airport could significantly affect air service to small communities, negatively affecting customers. "The slots that will be utilized by the new American are used to provide service to smaller communities that, if other airlines were given those slots, they would not go to similar-sized communities -- they'd be flown to larger markets," said Parker. "I think that'd be bad for consumers."
