The airline industry is booming, but there is always a problem facing the head of the Federal Aviation Administration, whether it's trying to prevent airline disasters or getting more of the flying public home on time.

Federal Aviation Administrator Jane Garvey told Burbank officials Monday she would try to win airline support for the deal to build a new Burbank Airport terminal, if the city does its part to ensure the plan complies with federal law, a Burbank official said.
