The US DoT will implement a plan to cut flights during peak hours at JFK airport. During the afternoon/evening rush, flights will be capped at 82-83 an hour, down from the 100 an hour we saw this summer. Airlines will voluntarily make cuts to ensure that goal number is reached. Any improvement at JFK is a good one, and if you’re thinking that you never fly to JFK, so this doesn’t affect you, you’re wrong. Delays at JFK trickle through the system so that your flight from Louisville to Atlanta can be delayed because of 4:30pm congestion at JFK.
