US Government to British Airways: Don’t Be So Quick to Launch New Airline

You may remember that British Airways has announced its intentions to launch a new airline that would fly from continental Europe to JFK.  Well…not so fast.  With the FAA trying to reduce congestion at JFK, they plan to ask foreign carriers to alter schedules to alleviate the late-afternoon rush at the airport.  This move would certainly hamper BA’s plans to add many additional flights to the airport.  Newark isn’t in good shape either, so this could spell the beginning of the end for the unlaunched airline.
