Congress has easily approved legislation ending furloughs of air traffic controllers that have delayed hundreds of flights daily.
Delayed passengers at DFW Airport couldn’t blame Tuesday’s weather for their problems. Most of the flight delays were due to sequestration budget cuts, and air traffic controller furloughs.
You could call it sequestration frustration. If the across the board spending cuts take effect March 1, the Obama administration warns you may want to pack your patience the next time you fly.
Federal officials say air traffic control centers at 25 smaller Texas airports could close or see hours reduced if automatic federal spending cuts take effect next week.
Since a deadly airline crash in 2009, the government hasn’t kept its promise to ensure that major airlines are holding their smaller partners to the same safety standards, a federal watchdog says.
A Boeing 787 landed routinely in Washington, near the factory where it was assembled. The plane was flown in from Fort Worth where it had been painted in the colors of the airline, China Southern.
Two single-engine planes landed safely after a mid-air collision that damaged the landing gear of one of the aircrafts and shattered the windshield of the other.
Federal regulators say they are ordering a comprehensive review of the critical systems of Boeing’s 787s, the aircraft maker’s newest and most technologically advanced plane, after a fire and a fuel leak earlier this week.
The FAA has ordered new inspections on older model Boeing 737’s in order to detect tiny cracks that could lead to tears in the fuselage.
Emergency crews and investigators remain at the scene of a plane crash near the border of Kaufman and Ellis County. Video from Chopper 11 showed the limited burned out remains of what was a fixed-wing aircraft.
A collision between a small plane and an SUV Saturday morning ended with the plane making a belly landing and the SUV losing a window.
American Airlines says it will do repairs on 49 more planes to prevent the seats from coming loose during flight.
