Nearly two years since San Diego County voters killed the idea of moving the airport to Miramar to handle projected capacity problems at Lindbergh Field comes this from The New York Times:

Airports around the country broke ground on dozens of projects over the last decade, including new runways and terminals, to handle all the new passenger traffic that seemed certain to keep growing.

Now, many of those new developments are being completed. And the timing could not be worse.

Airlines, after all, are grounding hundreds of planes and cutting as much as 20 percent of their domestic flying schedule because of last summer’s high oil prices and the weakening economy. More cuts are planned for next year.
