The Federal Aviation Administration does not expect Dallas/Fort Worth Airport or Dallas Love Field to experience serious delays on a daily basis, an agency spokesman said on Monday.
"Depending on the time of day, the weather and traffic conditions at other airports, it's possible that delays still could affect flight schedules," said FAA spokesman Lynn Lunsford in an e-mail statement on Monday, "In general, 10 percent of controllers at any facility are on furlough each day."
The FAA has implemented furloughs of its air traffic controllers as part of the budget cuts related to the federal government's sequestration process.
The agency said there were about 400 delays on Sunday that were attributable to the furloughs.
"The FAA is experiencing staffing challenges at New York Center and TRACON, Fort Worth Center, Jacksonville Center and Los Angeles Center," the FAA said in a statement. "Controllers will space planes farther apart so they can manage traffic with current staff, which will lead to delays at airports including New York's La Guardia Airport."
