Airlines for America, a trade group that represents large carriers, has said that its members don't have any plans to cancel or postpone flights because of the expected closure of 148 air-traffic control towers. The FAA announced the closures on Friday as part of its program to save $627M because of sequestration. The cost cuts will also affect major airports such as Chicago's O'Hare, where controllers will be required to work fewer hours per month.
