The Transportation Department said it will reconsider its controversial decision to turn over United Airlines’ Seattle-to-Toyko route to Continental Airlines. The department could award the lucrative route to United, Continental or American Airlines, all of which sought the route when United acquired Pan American’s Pacific routes in 1985. The department approved the purchase on the condition that the Seattle-Tokyo route be dealt with separately. Transportation Department spokesman Bill Mosley said a decision would be reached before the Nov. 21 deadline.
