Several U.S. airlines that fly to and from New York's Kennedy Airport and Newark Liberty Airport say they are willing to make voluntary scheduling changes and accept flight caps aimed at easing congestion. The DOT on Thursday announced a plan that calls for capping flights during peak periods. "We support the schedule reduction as a short-term fix to reduce delays, and applaud [Transportation Secretary Mary Peters] for the collaborative process she led addressing the issue in an equitable way," said Delta Air Lines CEO Richard Anderson.
