TOKYO -- All Nippon Airways is poised to edge out Japan Airlines in a decision over 25 new departure and arrival slots at Tokyo's Haneda Airport, which is undergoing an expansion in traffic that means hundreds of millions of dollars in additional revenue.

Under the final draft of a plan being discussed by regulators, ANA would receive 13.5 slot pairs while JAL would take 11.5. That means ANA Holdings unit ANA would retain its lead in international slots at Haneda including its current share.
