The National Business Aviation Association has commended FAA officials for coordinating with aviation-industry stakeholders to ensure that Super Bowl-related flights on February 6 encountered a minimum of delays. According to the NBAA, the key to a major event like this is preplanning. Also important: the decision not to use slot restrictions for aircraft flying into and out of the Indianapolis area, as these can lead to delays when jets do not land exactly at their scheduled times.

““When I made the film The Invention of Lying, they gave me a private jet for getting back and forth between New York and London. I thought, ‘I will never use it’ but I ended up using it every weekend. You turn up, right, and the airport is completely empty. I mean, there’s just someone at the desk and then the pilot, who says, ‘Are you ready to go?’ and you say, ‘Don’t you want to see my passport?’ and he goes, ‘Oh yeah, I suppose I’d better.’” ”
