Flight Delays Possible Due to Furloughs

Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) employees were forced to begin their furloughs this past weekend, which may cause flight delays for those traveling on Monday.  There will be a total of 47,000 FAA employees, including air traffic controllers, who will be furloughed.  The furloughs are a part of the sequestration that was mandated by the government.  They began on Sunday, but there were no major problems on that day.

A few flights between New York’s LaGuardia Airport and Washington’s Reagan National Airport left a little behind schedule.  However, most of the flights out of National, BWI Thurgood Marshall, and Washington Dulles left on schedule.  Despite this, Monday will be the true test of the effect of the furloughs, when travel for the week begins to ramp up.  Anyone traveling should check with their airline to be sure there are no delays and arrive at the airport with plenty of time to spare.

The above article is a summary.  Please see the source article at Google News.
