Paris airport slows due to low deicing stocks

France's civil aviation authority has asked airlines to reduce flights out of Paris' Charles de Gaulle airport by half for several hours due to a shortage of the liquid used to deice planes.
Civil aviation says that stocks of glycol are low and, with predictions of below-freezing temperatures on Friday, airlines should cut flights by 50 percent until 1200 GMT.
The order came just as backlogs of passengers waiting for a flight at Paris' two main airports eased after days of major weather-related congestion.
