FAA Temporarily Halts Some Flights into LaGuardia, Citing Shutdown, Staff Shortages

Late Thursday, Pelosi told AFP she remained "hopeful" that a deal to reopen government could be struck soon, and was staying in Washington in case negotiations lead to a breakthrough.

The stop was ordered shortly before 10 a.m.

The two dozen US airports, such as San Francisco International, that are allowed to use screening companies have been operating normally during the federal shutdown, with the screeners receiving normal paychecks from the companies. End your shutdown now. He said that in the meantime a bipartisan committee of lawmakers would meet to discuss the nation's border security needs.

"Over the next three weeks, the president and Congress will have an opportunity to craft a workable solution. How am I going to put food on the table?'"

"This shutdown has been a nightmare for hundreds of thousands of federal employees, their families, and the millions of Americans who rely on our federal workforce".

"The shutdown hadn't affected me until now", the management consultant from Ann Arbor, Michigan, tweeted. "We have warned about what could happen as a result of the prolonged shutdown". "We're in uncharted territory, so we just take it day by day".

"I'm glad the government is finally reopening". Sara Nelson, president of the Association of Flight Attendants-CWA, said the air safety system would "unravel" and predicted the issue to spread to other airports on Friday morning.

Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport had maximum wait times Thursday of 42 minutes, the highest of the nation's top 42 airports, TSA said in a statement Friday.

It blamed air traffic staff shortages for the strategic closures - which also delayed flights at Newark Liberty International Airport and Philadelphia International Airport.

"We have experienced a slight increase in sick leave at two facilities".

"We've mitigated the impact by augmenting staffing, rerouting traffic, and increasing spacing between aircraft as needed". Martin said safety is being maintained during a period of "minimal impacts" on travel. The Federal Aviation Association (FAA) had briefly halted flights entirely at LaGuardia, one of the busiest airports in the United States, Friday morning, although that notice has now been lifted.

Still, that caused a domino effect with flights delayed coming into New York City-area airports from other destinations - including Orlando. Making matters worse, her flight landed 45 minutes early, she said.

He wrote: "Among air traffic controllers, who are responsible for the safe flow of planes on the ground and in the air, staffing was already at record lows before the shutdown and the shutdown has only exacerbated the problem and increased pressure on staffing even further". The two centers handle flights en route between destinations, van Cleave reported.

Nearby Newark Airport faced significant delays for the same reason, adding to the nationwide air travel difficulties.
