SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The FAA has designated EWR, LAX, ORD, and SFO as IATA Level 2 airports and JFK as an IATA Level 3 airport under the WSG. The FAA currently limits scheduled operations at JFK by Order until October 27, 2018.1 The FAA is primarily concerned about scheduled and other regularly conducted commercial operations during peak hours, but carriers may submit schedule plans for the entire day. At ORD, the peak hours are 0700 to 2100 Central Time (1200 to 0200 UTC), at LAX and SFO from 0600 to 2300 Pacific Time (1300 to 0600 UTC), and at EWR and JFK from 0600 to 2300 Eastern Time (1000 to 0300 UTC). Carriers should submit schedule information in sufficient detail including, at minimum, the marketing or operating carrier, flight number, scheduled time of operation, frequency, aircraft equipment, and effective dates. IATA standard schedule information format and data elements (Standard Schedules Information Manual or SSIM, Chapter 6) may be used. The WSG provides additional information on schedule submissions and schedule updates at Level 2 and Level 3 airports. The U.S. summer scheduling season is from March 25 through October 27, 2018, in recognition of the IATA northern summer period. The FAA understands there may be differences in schedule times due to different U.S. daylight saving time dates and will accommodate these differences to the extent possible. The FAA generally uses average hourly runway capacity throughput for the schedule review at Level 2 airports, considering any differences associated with runway construction or other relevant operational and performance factors. The FAA will continue that practice to review the summer 2018 proposed schedules. Airlines planning operations at LAX should be advised the airport plans construction on Runway 7L/25R and is expected to close the runway from midJanuary to mid-May 2018. Los Angeles World Airports (LAWA), the airport operator, is currently finalizing construction plans. The FAA is reviewing the anticipated capacity impacts of the construction along with recent operational performance and demand trends. This includes surface congestion issues that are increasing 1 Operating Limitations at John F.

VerDate Sep<11>2014 19:01 Sep 29, 2017 Jkt 244001 operational complexity and impacting air traffic control as it manages surface movements. The FAA expects continuing discussions with LAWA, airlines, and other stakeholders on ways to reduce congestion and delay and manage operations more efficiently. LAWA conducts monthly meetings on construction and other operational issues that include local FAA air traffic control facilities, airlines, and other stakeholders. Such meetings may be the best regular source of construction project updates and the anticipated impacts. In 2016, the FAA found it could not justify continued Level 3 slot controls at EWR as the operations were consistently below the allocated limits and the airport was underutilized. The FAA changed EWR from Level 3 to Level 2 effective with the winter 2016 scheduling season. The FAA anticipated as a result of the Level 2 decision, an increase in flights which could provide competitive and economic benefits. The FAA also anticipated that with the increase in flights, delays would increase above 2016 levels but would remain within the levels accepted when the FAA established Level 3 in summer 2008. In reviewing schedules for summer 2018, as well as any new requests for winter 2017, the FAA will consider the recent operational performance metrics including the average hourly runway throughput trends.2 Our review of the average adjusted airport runway capacity indicates an average of 79 hourly operations, which is below the limit in the FAA 2008 Order, and below the levels currently scheduled in some hours. For the winter 2016 season, the FAA goal was up to 79 movements in an hour with some reduced levels in adjacent hours to provide recovery periods. This was meant to allow a transition from Level 3 to the first scheduling season as Level 2. For the summer 2018 season, the performance data suggest a similar approach may improve performance. The FAA has determined a scheduling limit of up to 79 flights an hour is appropriate. The FAA will accept flights above that limit provided they were typically operated by the same airline 2 The FAA typically determines an airport’s average adjusted runway capacity or throughput for Level 2 and Level 3 airports by reviewing hourly data on the arrival and departure rates that air traffic control indicates could be accepted for that hour.

At the same time, the FAA plans to work with airlines to retime some flights to less congested periods and have some hours to provide recovery periods. The mix of arrivals and departures, offsets for hours that may be above the limits, and the distribution of flights within an hour or adjacent hours will be considered. Beyond baseline flights, the FAA does not intend to approve new flights unless they can be accommodated within the limit. Based on demand for the summer 2017 scheduling season, the FAA anticipates the 1100 to 1259 and 1800 to 0059 UTC hours will be the peak periods without available capacity for new flights. Consistent with the WSG, carriers should be prepared to adjust schedules to meet available capacity in order to minimize potential congestion and delay. The Level 2 airports also have a separate schedule facilitation process managed by the airport operator or a designated representative for certain types of flights, such as international passenger flights, or at particular terminals or gates. Those processes with the individual airports or terminals will continue separately from, and in addition to, the FAA review of schedules based on runway capacity. Airlines should submit schedule information directly to the airport operator representatives in accordance with the local procedures. The FAA may consider the need to harmonize terminal and runway availability in the schedule review process. Issued in Washington, DC on September 21, 2017. Michael C.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The FAA has designated EWR, LAX, ORD, and 
SFO as IATA Level 2 airports and JFK as an IATA Level 3 airport under 
the WSG. The FAA currently limits scheduled operations at JFK by Order 
until October 27, 2018.\1\

Airport, 73 FR 3510 (Jan. 18, 2008) as amended 81 FR 32636 (May 24, 
2016) and 81 FR 40167 (June 21, 2016).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The FAA is primarily concerned about scheduled and other regularly 
conducted commercial operations during peak hours, but carriers may 
submit schedule plans for the entire day. At ORD, the peak hours are 
0700 to 2100 Central Time (1200 to 0200 UTC), at LAX and SFO from 0600 
to 2300 Pacific Time (1300 to 0600 UTC), and at EWR and JFK from 0600 
to 2300 Eastern Time (1000 to 0300 UTC). Carriers should submit 
schedule information in sufficient detail including, at minimum, the 
marketing or operating carrier, flight number, scheduled time of 
operation, frequency, aircraft equipment, and effective dates. IATA 
standard schedule information format and data elements (Standard 
Schedules Information Manual or SSIM, Chapter 6) may be used. The WSG 
provides additional information on schedule submissions and schedule 
updates at Level 2 and Level 3 airports.
    The U.S. summer scheduling season is from March 25 through October 
27, 2018, in recognition of the IATA northern summer period. The FAA 
understands there may be differences in schedule times due to different 
U.S. daylight saving time dates and will accommodate these differences 
to the extent possible.
    The FAA generally uses average hourly runway capacity throughput 
for the schedule review at Level 2 airports, considering any 
differences associated with runway construction or other relevant 
operational and performance factors. The FAA will continue that 
practice to review the summer 2018 proposed schedules.
    Airlines planning operations at LAX should be advised the airport 
plans construction on Runway 7L/25R and is expected to close the runway 
from mid-January to mid-May 2018. Los Angeles World Airports (LAWA), 
the airport operator, is currently finalizing construction plans. The 
FAA is reviewing the anticipated capacity impacts of the construction 
along with recent operational performance and demand trends. This 
includes surface congestion issues that are increasing operational 
complexity and impacting air traffic control as it manages surface 
movements. The FAA expects continuing discussions with LAWA, airlines, 
and other stakeholders on ways to reduce congestion and delay and 
manage operations more efficiently. LAWA conducts monthly meetings on 
construction and other operational issues that include local FAA air 
traffic control facilities, airlines, and other stakeholders. Such 
meetings may be the best regular source of construction project updates 
and the anticipated impacts.
    In 2016, the FAA found it could not justify continued Level 3 slot 
controls at EWR as the operations were consistently below the allocated 
limits and the airport was underutilized. The FAA changed EWR from 
Level 3 to Level 2 effective with the winter 2016 scheduling season. 
The FAA anticipated as a result of the Level 2 decision, an increase in 
flights which could provide competitive and economic benefits. The FAA 
also anticipated that with the increase in flights, delays would 
increase above 2016 levels but would remain within the levels accepted 
when the FAA established Level 3 in summer 2008. In reviewing schedules 
for summer 2018, as well as any new requests for winter 2017, the FAA 
will consider the recent operational performance metrics including the 
average hourly runway throughput trends.\2\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \2\ The FAA typically determines an airport's average adjusted 
runway capacity or throughput for Level 2 and Level 3 airports by 
reviewing hourly data on the arrival and departure rates that air 
traffic control indicates could be accepted for that hour. We also 
review the actual number of arrivals and departures that operated in 
the same hour. The higher of the two numbers, ``called'' or actual, 
are used for these purposes. Some dates may be excluded from 
analysis such as during periods when extended airport closures or 
construction impacts capacity.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Our review of the average adjusted airport runway capacity 
indicates an average of 79 hourly operations, which is below the limit 
in the FAA 2008 Order, and below the levels currently scheduled in some 
hours. For the winter 2016 season, the FAA goal was up to 79 movements 
in an hour with some reduced levels in adjacent hours to provide 
recovery periods. This was meant to allow a transition from Level 3 to 
the first scheduling season as Level 2. For the summer 2018 season, the 
performance data suggest a similar approach may improve performance. 
The FAA has determined a scheduling limit of up to 79 flights an hour 
is appropriate. The FAA will accept flights above that limit provided 
they were typically operated by the same airline for the summer 2017 
season. At the same time, the FAA plans to work with airlines to retime 
some flights to less congested periods and have some hours to provide 
recovery periods. The mix of arrivals and departures, offsets for hours
