The Federal Aviation Administration said it will seek to reduce flight delays this summer--starting April 28 with Daylight Saving Time--by using new air traffic procedures that allow more precise control of aircraft flow and by persuading airlines not to bunch flights during peak travel periods. Many of the new traffic flow procedures already have been put into effect, while others, including new flow patterns for some air traffic flying in and out of the New York City area, will be imposed beginning next month, FAA officials said. FAA Administrator Donald Engen told the airlines about the plans earlier this month.
