Aero-Linx: Flight Delay
Information - Air Traffic Control System Command
Welcome to the Air Traffic Control System Command
Center's real-time airport status page. This page lists
all major U.S. airports that are either experiencing delays or are
affected by a traffic management initiative.
"It should now be obvious to all that the security
procedures forced upon us by the TSA and Homeland Security have in
fact turned out to be the facade that we all knew them to be. The
latest TSA knee-jerk response is more of the same; however the
company and the flight crews have no choice but to comply.
Therefore we are asking all crews, both international and domestic,
to be at a heightened state of security awareness."
