Air Transport Association of America Sues FAA on Slot Auctioning

After warning the Department of Transportation (DOT) about plans to auction takeoff and landing slots at New York area airports last week, the Air Transport Association of America (ATA) sued the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) on Monday to stop the auctions. The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey have joined the ATA in the public call to stop the slot auctions.
