Ticked off at takeoff policy

George Klein
Akron, Ohio

I have owned a home in Aspen since 1967 and have put up with the issues of flying to Aspen.

On Jan. 4, my daughter was flying from Aspen to Boston. Her Aspen flight was held for over one hour because “air traffic control was giving take-off priority to private planes.” In Denver, she had nine minutes to make her Boston plane.

What sense is there to hold a plane with 150-plus passengers while 10-15 private planes take off?
