FAA Cuts Distance Between Planes

The FAA made the announcement yesterday. The agency says the new runway rule is an attempt to reduce flight delays.

The new procedure squeezes about ten more flights per hour into O'Hare when a certain combination of runways is used.

FAA spokesman Tony Molinaro says the change was developed with American Airlines, United Airlines, and pilot and controller unions. It will go into effect Sunday.
