We are all aware about the issue between Philippine Airlines (PAL) and United Airlines (UAL). Well just to recap, there is an ongoing squabble between the two airlines. PAL is applying to open a direct link between Manila and Seattle to the US Department of Transportation (DOT). However, UAL has asked the DOT to stop this until they (UAL) are granted more slots in Manila for their services between Manila and Guam.

As we all know, there is a sort of feud between Philippine Airlines and United Airlines. The latter has been attempting to lobby the US Department of Transportation (DOT) to postpone the granting of the former's requested slots to Seattle in exchange of more slots in Manila. United is requesting for more Manila slots in order to increase its Guam - Manila capacity. The US airline was denied slots, not by PAL, but by the firm handling Manila's slots.
