Japan today announced that it would make 14 x weekly daytime slots at Tokyo Haneda available for UK airlines from the beginning of the Summer 2014 timetable. Seven of the slots are likely to be used by Virgin Atlantic leaving seven available for British Airways. This gives BA the option of switching BA5/BA6 from Tokyo Narita to Tokyo Haneda and keeping BA7/BA8 at its current timings or leaving BA5/BA6 at Tokyo Narita and switching the timings BA7/BA8.
