Saturday 01:32 GMT

JetBlue Airways, the busiest carrier at Long Beach Airport, has violated the city’s noise curfew so often this year that if a proposed noise crackdown is adopted, the New York-based carrier could face being shut out of the airport.

Violations of the city’s noise curfew have increased so much in the past six months that Long Beach Airport officials are proposing a fine increase of up to 3,200% and the authority to boot a carrier that has more than 20 violations in a 24-month period.

In fact, beginning in 1975, Social Security ran a deficit each year, and it was estimated that the program would not be able to continue to make benefit payments on time beginning in July 1983.
