Slot Allocation For NYC

Sun Nov 26, 2000 1:10 am

Between 5.30 and 8.30, CO have 40 departures between 5.30 and 7.00 and 55 at 7.00 til 8.30

95 flights in 180 mins.

1 per 1 min 53 seconds

This is including 8 codeshare flights, but excludes the other airlines, and since CO controls only 56% if seats out of EWR, how obviously inevitable are these delays.

The minimum seperation between takeoffs has to be close to 2 min.

They would have to use the two full length runways to get out of these jams.

Any thoughts?

By the way, there are also 70 arrivals in the period.

I know this issue is difficult to solve and all, but someone talk to me?

Don't you think they need slot control at most major US airports these days...?

The congestion there is fairly bad then, all those delays will add up over time. Does an a/c ever depart right on sched during that time?

The reason I brought up the subject is cause last time I was at EWR (EWR-LGW, VS) I waited 50 mins to take off. 18.30 departure. We joined a queue of 18 planes. And this was a normal Tuesday afternoon.

Can't they just allocate like they do at LHR, JFK, LGA? Less delays there. How simple is the bureaucracy, getting airines to agree etc...

I COMPLETELY disagree that LGA and JFK are better. I have sat for HOURS in line waiting to take off at both JFK and LGA. According to some recent statistics I saw, LGA had a lower percentage of on time flights than any other US airport.

I didnt mean EWR should become like LGA I just meant that it needs something done, as does LGA. But imagine LGA without slot-controlling!
