US airlines disappointed by DOT cuts

The Air Transport Association of America has expressed disappointment at the Department of Transportation schedule reduction proposal for flights at John F. Kennedy International Airport.“This is a disappointing decision. Slashing operations at JFK alone will not solve the congestion problem but will shut the door on growth for our country’s leading international gateway,” said ATA President and CEO James C. May. “We know that there are better solutions to New York’s capacity needs and we are committed to working with FAA to put them into effect.”
