Look Out! Sequester Air-Traffic Delays!


Okay, this time, they really mean it: The pain and suffering of Sequester has hit:

Commercial airline flights started backing up and delayed some travelers Monday, a day after air traffic controllers started going on furlough because of government spending cuts.

Good heavens! Why, let’s check on the Federal Aviation Administration web site, to see how terrible and horrible those Sequester delays are . . .

Hm. As of 9:40 a.m., there are 15- to 45-minute general delays at Reagan National, Newark, and Teterboro, and longer delays into LaGuardia. Everywhere else, it’s 15 minutes or less.

In other words, it’s Monday.
