At a time when the air travel is back up .. and people are travelling more than ever again in the US, this is a rather grim reminder that high volume does pose a threat! I have always considered the North East corridor to be one of the worst areas for air travel in the US! The entire arch from Chicago to Atlanta comprising the 3 big airports in NYC and NJ are a mess. It probably has become important to route big loads to Southern airports like say in Texas or maybe one in Arizona.. where there is enough land and space to build and enhance airports!
