The slot auction is temporarily blocked, and will likely be so until the next administration.

This is good news....
I can not understand the logic that Ms. Petes has...

Transportation Secretary Mary Peters called for the auction as a way to reduce air traffic at the John F. Kennedy, LaGuardia and Newark, N.J., airports. The government says two out of three flights delayed 15 minutes or more were due to cascading backups beginning at one of the New York metropolitan area's three airports.


What difference does it make which airline is using the slot? It is still a plane that is still taking up airspace! The ONLY way to reduce delays is to reduce the number of airplanes or increase the available capacity of the system. (i.e. next gen)

slots auctions will do neither.
