Broken: Newark Airport

For the next several weeks, do not fly into, or out of, Newark Liberty International Airport. Instead, use either of New York's other major airports: JFK or LaGuardia.

One of Newark Airport's runways is being resurfaced for the next month or so. As far as I can tell, every single flight going into or out of Newark is delayed.

There's also a safety issue, as I found out last night, flying into Newark (on a delayed flight, of course). As we came in for landing, the pilot gunned the engine, aborted the landing, and flew around to get back in the long line of planes for another landing attempt.

Why did he abort the landing? There was another plane on the runway. In the pilot's words, "too many planes and too little runway space."

Safety issues and across-the-board delays: do not fly Newark.


Why didn't they reduce the number of flights?
