Airlines Drop Arrival, Departure Times

Briefs in a Brief

Newark, N.J. ( – Responding to a dramatic rise in complaints over flight delays, several major airlines announced today they will no longer attach “stress-inducing” numbers to arrival and departure times, but will instead use a variety of pleasant, calming nicknames. For example, Continental Airlines’ 10 a.m. Newark-to-San Francisco flight will now leave at “Snookums” and arrive at “Tooey.” The airlines also said they would deal with two other common complaints – lost baggage and cramped seating – by increasing leg room in their lost luggage departments.
