Mayor Daley chided United and American Airlines for postponing Thursday's meeting on O'Hare Airport expansion, and rejecting a series of future meetings.

He spoke Thursday during a city news conference.

The airlines are suing Chicago to stop construction of more runways until passenger traffic improves.

Daley said when he learned the airlines cancelled the meeting, he even offered to meet them on a Sunday, which he considers family day.
