National Airspace System: DoT and FAA Actions Will Likely Have a Limited Effect on Reducing Delays During Summer 2008 Travel Season: Congressional Testimony
DIANE Publishing, Feb 1, 2009 - 31 pages
More than 1 in 4 flights either arrived late or was canceled in `07 -- making it one of the worst years for delays in the last decade. Delays and cancellations were particularly evident at the 3 N.Y. airports -- Newark, Kennedy, and LaGuardia. To avoid a repeat of last summer┐s problems, DoT and the FAA developed and implemented several actions to reduce congestion and delays for the summer 2008 travel season. This testimony addresses: (1) the trends in the extent and principal sources of flight delays and cancellations over the last 10 years; (2) the status of fed. gov┐t. actions to reduce flight delays and cancellations; and (3) the extent to which these actions may reduce delays and cancellations for the summer 2008 travel season.
