    I live in the Pelham Parkway area of the Bronx and the air traffic has increased dramatically, the jets fly lower, earlier at beginning of day and later at night. We should not accept finality on this issue from an FAA functionary. After 911, all of the air traffic that would have gone anywhere over or near Manhattan has now been directed over our areas. In addition, planes keep their flaps straighter (not up so much) to climb slowly to save fuel. They also make longer shallower landings as well. Starting at 6am I'm awoken to the roar of jet engines and they can continue all day in an endless tandem every minute at some points. There is no peace anymore. The airlines have complete disregard for the citizens living along these flight routes and it's up to us to get them to make some significant alterations in how they manage flights. This issue is not dead by any means and it's time to bring it back to the table and start unifying on an inter-borough basis.
