A top House Republican accused the FAA of a "shocking lapse of management" in giving the airlines just "hours" notice before furloughing air traffic controllers, leaving the industry struggling to adjust to major flight delays.
For the Federal Aviation Administration, regulating the skies is about to get much more complicated.
But FAA Administrator Michael P. Huerta said it's no error: The inspection force in fact had been targeted for the furloughs.
He said airlines should have been prepared to adjust their schedules to accommodate the furloughs, which amount to sending controllers home for one day per paycheck.
