The Heart of the Problem

Air travel passengers everywhere dread the possibility of long delays on the tarmac, explains Richard Newman in an article recently published in The Record. However, the article also explains that these very visible and unfortunate delays are really a "symptom of a bigger problem - an outdated national air traffic control system that has not kept pace with growth in travel." This really gets to the heart of the problem, particularly at the New York region's airports where in 2007 two thirds of the region's flights were delayed and three quarters of delays nationwide were due to the New York region's airports. Let us know how delays affect you!
