JFK Delays, Int'l Airlines Meeting Oct. 23-24

Mon Oct 15, 2007 5:30 pm

More than a third of all JFK flights were delayed in August as airlines have ramped up operations this year to try to extend their modest financial recovery. Compounding the problem are limited runway and gate facilities and the limitations of the aging air traffic control system.
There had been speculation recently about whether foreign airlines would participate in the talks on Oct. 23-24 that are aimed at reaching a voluntary agreement on scheduling for next spring and summer to reduce delays and congestion.

"The international airlines faced record delays this summer and keeping the status quo is not acceptable."
