Putting a No Fly Zone over Texas would be one of the worst ideas ever. Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport is bigger than the state of Rhode
Island. This is shear stupidity at its finest to even suggest something like this. Enough flights (even international ones) go through D/FW
International alone that it would cause a serious ripple affect across the country. Sure, you could re-route some things, but there aren't many other
major airports around the country that could handle the load of flights that would need to be accommodated just form that one airport. And what about
all the flights from Love Field (also in Dallas)? Austin? San Antonio? Houston? Amarillo? Texas is so big, that would be like shutting down the
airspace of most of Western Europe.
Also, what of the airlines based in Texas, like SouthWest? Would they have to stop all operations, or would it just be the flights here? And what of
the military bases? What about NASA? What if they need to land at or take off from Johnson Space Center because they can't at Kennedy for some
Again, shear stupidity to even suggest it.
