The FAA's new Chief Operating Officer, Henry Krakowski, says discussions with airlines about schedule reductions at JFK have been "constructive" so far. He anticipates that the talks will continue into November. Airlines and the Port Authority have criticized the FAA's proposed plan to implement congestion pricing and/or cut flights at JFK to about 80 per hour, saying there are ways to cut delays without raising ticket prices or curtailing business. James May, president and CEO of the Air Transport Association, said congestion pricing would hurt travelers. "It ends up being another tax on passengers," he said. "I'm opposed to that."
