Airport traffic control furloughs kick in Sunday

The furloughs affecting the airport traffic controllers are set to kick in Sunday.

Now airlines are asking a federal court to stop them.

They say the cuts could cause major delay on up to 6,700 flights a day.

The FAA and the airlines disagree on whether the furloughs are necessary. The FAA says they are to meet the budget cuts while the airlines say the FAA could make cuts elsewhere.
