Talks to Ease Gridlock at O'Hare Resume

By  | 

Officials from sixteen airlines met in Washington, DC with the Federal Aviation Administration last week, but those talks ended without much success.

The U.S. Department of Transportation says the new round of talks will be conducted mostly by phone.

The FAA is seeking to eliminate more than 60 flights a day at O'Hare.

U.S. Transportation Secretary Norman Mineta has said the airlines need to ease gridlock at O'Hare before the government steps in and imposes strict flight caps.
