On May 15, a Tokyo-New York flight diverted to Dulles Airport near Washington, where passengers were stuck on board for five hours because of refueling and crew members reaching the end of their shift.

The airline blamed the delays on weather-related airport congestion.

Last month, the U.S. Transportation Department announced that American and Japanese officials in Tokyo had agreed to increase daytime services between Tokyo's Haneda Airport and U.S. destinations for two dozen new flights daily.

The amendment to the U.S.-Japan Open Skies Agreement allocates 12 new slot pairs - 12 arrivals and 12 departures daily - for U.S. air carriers and 12 new slot pairs for Japanese air carriers.

Tokyo International Airport, also known as Haneda, is the main gateway into Japan as it is closer to the city center than Narita, the other main airport that serves the city.
