Northwest and other airlines at the Twin Cities International Airport will have to wait a little longer for a proposed multi-million dollar package of subsidies from the Metropolitan Airports Commission. The MAC delayed a vote on the package yesterday. The plan would have cut costs for the airlines, and supporters say it would have helped the airport shore up its finances.
