Feds order fewer flights at Kennedy Airport

In the most sweeping effort to date to ease congestion at New York's three major airports, U.S. Transportation Secretary Mary Peters Wednesday ordered a nearly 20 percent reduction of flights per hour during peak times at Kennedy beginning in March.

 

She also said an airspace "czar" will be appointed to oversee efforts to reduce delays.

 

Peters, after months of deliberations and meetings with aviation officials and political figures, said some kind of similar caps will ultimately go into effect at Newark Liberty International Airport. Flight limitations are already in place at LaGuardia.

Newark is fine, but just needs to really work on whats going out. Coming in is no prob there.

 

Good thing they're starting with JFK because it gets worse everyday I hear. One reason why I don't fly out of there....

The delays start at JFK and ripple all the way across the country. JFK causes almost every other connecting airport to experience delays. Personally I do not flying out of JFK because of this. My last flight out was from Newark and it was smooth.
