Airport delays occur because airport capacity is a scarce resource and, airlines are scheduling more flights than that capacity can support. As a result, more and more flights are delayed, even under normal weather conditions, and considerable costs are imposed on the traveling public. Passengers are paying, in effect, a much higher total price than the dollar price of their tickets.

Describe a situation where airport operations are exceeding airport capacity (temporarily or permanently) and causing delay, and then give some proposed solutions.  Ensure you back up your solutions with facts and resources.
