Default Controller Furlough Delays

The FAA website is showing very few delays infact showing tampa as green. However look at the flights going from atlanta to tampa - everyone is delayed and the delay is growing:

check out all flights from atlanta to tampa on flightware today!

The FAA furloughing of controllers is being done to make the flying public feel as much pain as possible - not to make wise budget cuts. Our transportation system is becoming cripple because politicians and bureaucrats are behaving like children. They are providing miss-information on their website regarding real delays.

If you are travelling you will be affected - probably when you really need to get somewhere. Surprised there aren't more complaints about this - or are we just used to crappy service from our air transportation system?

This is no one's but the airlines' fault. They should have pre-planned for this and there is nobody to blame but them. Period
