Well, all the airlines that operate out of O'hare airport have agreed to cut the number of flight arrivals per hour down from 132 to 88 between 7am and 8pm starting this fall, after the FAA came down hard. What this means: fewer and shorter delays for passengers, but the possibility of increased prices for tickets. Also, those busy air traffic controllers won't "get as distracted as much." Whew! And I wasn't thinking about that at all before.
