Chicago Mayor to meet United, AA on airport expansion dispute

2-Feb-2011 11:46 AM

US city of Chicago mayor has reportedly agreed to meet with representatives of United Airlines and American Airlines to discuss their opposition to completing an expansion programme at Chicago O’Hare International Airport on 3-Feb-2011 (chicagobusiness.com, 31-Jan-2011). The carriers are fighting the city's attempt to load the airport and the airlines with more long-term debt for the USD3.4 billion second phase of expansion. The carriers want to halt the project until passenger demand for services increases.
