Conversations Are Continuing
Transportation Secretary Norman Y. Mineta On O'Hare Schedule
Conversations between representatives of the US Department of
Transportation's Federal Aviation Administration and airlines
serving Chicago O'Hare International Airport continue.
I am pleased that the airlines have made some progress in
addressing the serious congestion problem at O'Hare Airport,
although more needs to be, and will be, done. Delays at O'Hare not
only affect the nation's air traffic, they risk placing a
bottleneck on the rapidly expanding economy. It is absolutely
critical that every airline involved in these conversations
participate in good faith and commit to doing what is necessary to
keep travelers and the American economy moving.
We will continue conversations tomorrow and in the coming days
if necessary. I remain hopeful that the airlines voluntarily reach
a solution that truly eases delays at the airport and continues to
fuel the economy.
