Dealt a bad hand, but was it also an unlucky roll of the die? Plus a product update!
Smoke in ZMP/ZAU, T-storms in ZNY; Summer’s off to a great start!
A very interesting read. The insights regarding FAA staffing levels and associated implications for arrival rates, while accounting for weather and runway configuration, does appropriately assign some of the culpability to FAA staffing levels. The resulting domino effect that occurred from the suboptimal FAA staffing had a more significant impact on United, due to their corresponding volume of affected flights. At this point, it appears that United has nearly fully recovered. Let’s hope the stars align for better staffing and fewer weather events, but I won’t hold my breath. Thanks for the great article.
