The FAA notes that the WASB proposal is silent concerning a position VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:30 Dec 21, 2020 Jkt 253001 on further relief for prioritizing flights canceled due to COVID–19 at designated IATA Level 2 airports. The FAA further notes that certain provisions and concepts of the detailed WASB proposal would not necessarily apply in the United States to the extent that there are established differences in effect under established rules and orders governing slot management in the United States. For example, traditional concepts of ‘‘series of slots’’ and provision 8.7.2.2 of the WASG have not been adopted in the United States.20 The FAA received written submissions from IATA, A4A, Delta Air Lines, Inc., and Virgin Atlantic Airways, Ltd. expressing support for FAA adoption of this proposal. Additional Submission Regarding Relief Beyond March 27, 2021 In addition, the FAA has received an alternative proposal concerning relief beyond March 27, 2021 from Southwest Airlines Co., which takes no position on the WASB proposal relative to JFK, opposes the WASB proposal relative to DCA and LGA, and suggests extending the FAA’s current relief at DCA and LGA for an additional half season at most, through June 27, 2021. This submission has been placed in the docket associated with this notice. Invitation for Comment The FAA seeks views and information regarding these or other proposals. The FAA further invites comment on whether the proposal adopted by the FAA should make relief available for the full duration of the Summer 2021 scheduling season, which ends on October 30, 2021. Written views and supporting data may be submitted no later than December 29, 2020 to the docket associated with this notice as explained previously in this notice.
