Ban would allow people to sleep We are in favor of a mandatory ban on all flights from 10 p.m. to 7 a.m. at Bob Hope Airport (?Residents letting their comments fly,? April 5). We live very close to Hollywood Way and are awakened almost every morning at about 5 a.m. by two or three planes landing. Unfortunately, they are not flying over Hollywood Way. They are making their turn and coming up directly over Kenwood Street and our neighborhood. We can see the planes clearly; they are so low at this point we can see the oil stains on the bottom of the planes, and at night the lights flash in our windows.

AIRPORT DISTRICT — Dozens of residents filtered in and out of the airport Sky Room Monday afternoon, as a brief video laid out the Burbank-Glendale-Pasadena Airport Authority’s case for banning all late-night and early-morning flights.

Mark R. Madler AIRPORT DISTRICT -- Passenger traffic at Bob Hope Airport spiked by about 200,000 people last year, compared to 2003. It was the third year in a row the airport experienced an upswing in people coming through its terminal, officials said. A big reason why 2004 saw an increase in passengers flying again were low airfares, this despite the increased costs in jet fuel, said Brian Streeval, an industry analyst with the Boyd Group, an aviation-consulting and forecasting company based in Colorado.
