Sen. Charles E. Schumer, D-N.Y., wants the Transportation Department to address air delays by arranging a meeting of airlines to coordinate schedule cuts and by renegotiating civilian use of offshore military airspace with the Pentagon.

"It's a mystery why they're not doing this, given how bad things are."
