Airline Summit

Noah talks with NPR's Mary Ann Akers about Transportation Secretary Rodney Slater's meeting today with airline and union leaders about flight delays and cancellations, and other problems in the industry. Some factors in the disruptions have been more people flying, bad weather and the limited capacity of airports and the air traffic control system. Some members of Congress have advocated a "bill of rights" to try to get passengers better treatment and more information in the face of delays.
