    “The math simply does not work, and it is irresponsible to suggest that a 10 percent reduction of air traffic control hours should mean 40 percent fewer flights can arrive on time,” Calio said. “It’s unjust, unnecessary and completely irresponsible.”
    This man is CEO of a large corporation and he doesn't understand ECONOMIES OF SCALE?  10% inefficiencies can often have dire consequences in any 'just in time' delivery system - and the airlines are a prime example of a system that relies on precise scheduling.  Several flights in a hub can affect the whole flight system.  He should know this.  A snow storm in Chicago may effect 10% of the total traffic at any given time, but may will back up the entire flight system.  The Board of Directors should fire this guy.  I'm sure he is just playing politics and has contributed a boat load of personal cash to the GOP.
