The FAA is presently reconsidering whether to go forward with the rule and is evaluating whether to propose its rescission. Accordingly, the FAA requested that the briefing schedule be held in abeyance. The court granted the FAA’s request on April 1, 2009. Given the uncertainty surrounding the rule, it is likely that the orders at JFK and EWR will be extended through the Winter 2009/10 scheduling season. The hourly capacity at JFK and EWR has not increased significantly since the orders took effect last spring. Because the demand for operations at New Yorkarea airports remains high, and in light of the judicial stay, obtaining schedule information by the standard industry deadline and reviewing those schedules under the current procedures is the most practical way to proceed at this time. The FAA is primarily concerned about planned passenger and cargo operations during peak hours, but carriers may submit schedule plans for the entire day. At ORD, the peak hours are between 7 a.m. and 9 p.m. Central Standard Time (1300–0300 UTC) and at EWR and JFK between the hours of 6 a.m. and 11 p.m. Eastern Standard Time (1100–0400 UTC). Carriers should submit schedule information in sufficient detail including, at minimum, the operating carrier, flight number, scheduled time of operation, frequency, and effective dates. IATA standard schedule information format and data elements (Standard Schedules Information Manual) may be used. The U.S. winter scheduling season is from October 25, 2009, through March 27, 2010, in recognition of the IATA scheduling season dates. The FAA understands there may be differences in schedule times due to the U.S. daylight saving time dates, and we will accommodate these differences to the extent that it is possible.
