Busy, Busy, Busy...

Can you guess the 5 busiest airports in the world last year in terms of passenger movements? They're listed at the bottom of this news item:

A news story about growing congestion in the skies.

And here is the Flight Aware view of the current air traffic situation over JFK in New York.

Whatever happened to the big sky theory?

For a little fun here's the Memphis weather divert video, I'm sure you've seen it.

That's neat. I like watching the little 'ants with placards' when they disappear under the green areas and hopefully re-emerge on the other side.

The news tonight is focusing on the A380 vs. the B787. Will the trend be towards fewer, larger flights or smaller more frequent flights?

It will also be interesting to see how the VLJ (very light jets) find their niche in all this.
