Re: LGB seeks to crack down on JetBlue slot usage

As noted in the article in the OP, the slot rules were changed in November and the "use-it-or-lose-it" requirements are much more strict--not really a change in the application of the rules but rather the rules themselves. http://www.gazettes.com/news/business/long-beach-requires-more-flig...

AFAIK that decision would be made by Flight Ops and Safety and if the runway is cited as the reason it is more than likely a pavement issue.

It would’ve had to have been reported up by flight crew and I’m sure someone was sent down there to inspect it before making the decision.
