FAA: Chicago needs to deal with flight demand

The head of the Federal Aviation Administration says Chicago will either need to build a new airport or expand an existing one to keep pace with flight demand in the future. O'Hare is currently undergoing a $15 billion expansion.

But Robert Sturgell says that will not be enough. He believes the number of air travelers will double by 2015 and Chicago plays too vital of a role as an aviation hub to not expand flight capacity.
