FAA furloughs lead to increased delays at Logan, elsewhere

Flight delays in Boston have increased since furloughs of air traffic controllers began on Sunday, but they aren’t as severe as at other airports around the nation.

About 33 percent of the flights at Logan International Airport were delayed 15 minutes or more Monday through Wednesday, compared with 21 percent during the same period last week — before the Federal Aviation Administration began furloughing air traffic controllers to meet mandated budget cuts — according to the flight tracking company Flight­Aware.
