WSJ: A significant portion of flight delays attributable to Florida ATC

From today's Numlock News:

Delays

The U.S. is seeing delayed flights all across the country — a fifth of flights were delayed on arrival in the first half of the year — and now we know it’s Florida’s fault. The FAA has attributed 1.6 million minutes of delays to issues at the air traffic control center near Jacksonville, which is four times the level Jacksonville’s control center had in 2019. Reasons for the delays are multiple space launches that are interfering with flights and rising private jet use. The two air traffic control centers based in Florida are behind only Atlanta in terms of the number of aircraft handled. In the first six months of the year, 20 percent of flights were delayed upon arrival, but that level was 25 percent in Miami International Airport, 27 percent at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International, and 30 percent at Orlando International.
