WASHINGTON - Escalating a battle over who should pay for a modernized air traffic control system, a new coalition of private aircraft operators said Tuesday they want Congress to reject a plan that shifts more cost onto them.

To fund a satellite-based navigation system that is superior to radar and radio, the Federal Aviation Administration proposes replacing a 7.5 percent tax on airline tickets with a combination of fees and taxes.

SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - Northwest Airlines canceled a flight set to leave from Las Vegas to Detroit after the captain cursed on a cell phone in a bathroom, then swore at one of the 180 passengers on the plane, officials said on Saturday.

"He used what was described to me as rude language," Ian Gregor, a spokesman for the Federal Aviation Administration, said about Friday's incident on Northwest Flight 1190.

"At some point during the boarding process, he left the cockpit, went into the front lavatory, locked the door and continued his conversation.

"Passengers who were boarding the aircraft could hear his end of the conversation through the lavatory door."

When the captain emerged from the bathroom, a passenger confronted him about his behavior, reportedly prompting more cursing by the pilot of the B757 aircraft.

Local police questioned the captain, whose name was not released, and determined there was no cause to conduct a sobriety test, Gregor said.

But Northwest canceled the flight and flew the pilot back to his base in Detroit.

"Northwest is conducting a review of the matter and has apologized to its customers for the inconvenience," the company said in a statement. "Northwest has provided impacted customers with meals and hotels. In recognition of the inconvenience, they will receive compensation from Northwest Airlines."

Monroe, Ga. 4/5/2007

Travolta’s private plane began experiencing engine trouble shortly after leaving Germany but he was able to guide the aircraft to Ireland and avoid disaster.

The 53-year-old Hollywood star was a bit shaken after navigating the bird to the ground and opted to hire another plane to get back stateside.

Travolta was in Germany promoting his film “Wild Hogs” that partners him with Tim Allen, Martin Lawrence and William H. Macy.

It took a mere 16 seconds for the largest airplane in the world to lift off runway 4L at JFK International Airport. The short takeoff, which we could watch on our individual TV screens thanks to cameras positioned on the plane's exterior, confirmed that the world’s largest jetliner could use less runway than many smaller jets. It also was testimony to the force of the aircraft’s four Rolls Royce engines, which each provide about 70,000 lbs. of thrust.
