O'Hare About To Get More Congested

By Marcus Gilmer in News on Oct 29, 2008 5:20PM

As if the delays and congestion situation at O'Hare weren't bad enough, they could get even worse Friday as the FAA-instituted cap on flights ends. The cap limits the number of flights per hour between 7 a.m. and 9 p.m. to 88 but is being lifted by the FAA thanks to the economic struggles of the airline industry. Of course, even with fewer flights O'Hare is still one of the worst airports in the nation for on-time arrivals and departures. U.S. Transportation Secretary Mary Peters will be in town to look for other solutions to fixing O'Hare's woes. I bet she totally flies in to Midway.
