Daley to meet with airlines Wednesday

February 9, 2011 6:13:20 AM PST
Mayor Daley and the heads of United and American Airlines will meet Wednesday in what could be called a summit on the O'Hare Airport modernization project.

The airlines have sued the city trying to block construction. They say Chicago needs their approval to sell bonds to finance the project. They have refused to give that approval.

The mayor has said the project needs to move forward now.

The meeting will be hosted by Dept. of Transportation Sec. Ray LaHood.
