That's because Boston isn't utilizing decent surface management software. Busier airports like Atlanta and JFK do, so if you want to do a real study, study an airport that has already addressed this issue. http://www.airtrafficmanagemen... https://www.youtube.com/watch?...

Comment: Complain to the supplier! (Score 1) 204

I bought a USB temperature reader and the software that came with it would not even run. After 2 weeks of complaining to the manufacturer (in China) I complained to the website that I bought it from. The software was fixed the next day. It turns out the supplier (also in China) had a close business relationship with the manufacturer and basically told them to fix it. I never quite understood how they could let it get to the point of burning software CDs with software that didn't work at all.

Realistically, how many people share the same name as a terrorist? I had a friend by the name of Chris Johnson who had been flagged. If one Chris Johnson is a bad guy...all the rest are not, and I bet that's a lot of Johnsons. What made it funny was that he had a top secret clearance but still got flagged at airports.

No problem is insoluble in all conceivable circumstances.
