In the US the biggest problem is the FAA and its bureaucracy and vacuum tube ATC system. Totally inefficient. So much so that most of the majors would be profitable today were it not for the cost incurred by this broken down system.

Hi Fly_emirates,
All the best of luck with that Major. Im sure it will be very interesting. SOme problems I can think of are the escalating ATC work loads and the 'bursting of seams' at major international airports . Congestion and increased risk of runway inccursions are some major problems I will think.
Increased pressure to reduce noise and engine emissions are environemtal issues as well as airport expansion and its impact on its surroudings and communities.  Smile
