Despite the misspelling I have yet to see delays of this type at ORD. I'd put up with the delays to see this

Cheers.

Thanks for the catch. I wish there was a spell check button to use on FT for the "Webster" freaks.

Yeah.. super... until you try to book a flight and realize there's no seats and the price is triple what you paid the last time around.

If you use Apple's Safari browser, you'll have spell check for anything you type.

Actually, the spelling was nowhere near as interesting as the word choice..but I think that comment may have been missed

Cheers.

"The Federal Aviation Administration said last week it planned to lift flight caps at O'Hare at the end of October, saying the restrictions on airport operations would not longer be needed given the new runway opening at the airport and capacity cuts planned by the airport's two major tenants: American and United Airlines.

American had asked federal officials to keep the caps in place for a year to ensure the measures would truly ease the chronic congestion at the airport, Fagan said."

What if I don't want to use Safari? Why can't FT create a spell check button like some other websites.

Actually, there is a spell check function, but it requires that you download the software, AFAIK. I think it's called ieSpell.

When you post a reply, the icon is in the upper right corner.
