DOT finds flaw in its tarmac-delay data

The Department of Tranporation just started collecting data on long tarmac delays from the airlines but has already found a flaw in what was reported for October. A complete story can be found in the trade magazine Travel Weekly., which notes that a consumer group that was formed to push the government into requiring reporting of the data pointed out the problem. A note about the flaw has been added to the stats, available at the Bureau of Transportation Statistics Web site.
