Wednesday Wakeup: Does Obama Want to Own the Airlines?
• Sensis Aerobahn, an innovative new ground management system being tested at JFK, has produced very positive results, say some airlines.
• Hundreds of flights to and from New York-area airports were diverted or delayed Tuesday afternoon and evening due to severe thunderstorms passing over the area. Residual delays will likely ripple through Wednesday.
• Boeing has issued an ultimatum to its machinists: If contract issues are not resolved by fall, the second 787 production line will be built someplace outside of Washington.
