REPORTER: John Chancellor

(NYC) Report on arguments of Air France and British Airways attys. and Port Authority attorney William Patrick Falvey before Judge Milton Pollack. Arguments rest on whether Port Authority is in control of JFK Airport over federal government's permission for trial landings. Pollack asks if airport and authority are part of United States and if Civil War not fought with federal government winning; asks how anything can get fair trial without test landings. Possible noise-reducing takeoff runways noted; 1 avoids New York City suburb of Howard Beach. Possible further court action cited.
