A couple of years ago, PHL started publishing RNAV departure procedures for most of the departure fixes. I believe these were used briefly but standard still seems to be the PHL 8 with the RNAV's not even being used at all.
I read in another forum that these procedures were suspended indefinitely due to a possible conflict with the HOLEY intersection that ATC frequently uses to hold LGA arrivals.
My question is, does anyone else have any more information on this, and when we might see these procedures used again? You have to think that USAirways is screaming to get these procedures reinstated as they do save fuel, plus with the airplanes flying on such a tight route, in thoery this should give ATC more airspace to play with in an area where airspace is at a premium.
