Corp jet X was climbing off pwk via rbs fam landing lit. He was initially climbed to FL280 and then 310. An ord inbound was rerouted from cgt routing to rbs pnt V227 plano ord at FL310. (This put him in direct confliction with the ord outbnds traveling south. This is a common occurrence since flow control is so worried about protecting O'hare. Flow control forces these departure sectors (rbs and eon) to work inbnds descending through outbnds that are climbing through the same airspace.) corp X was climbed to FL350 to miss the ord inbound reroute and lost his transponder. I told the manual controller to coordinate primary only aircraft with ZKC. FL350 was written on the strip, but the manual controller coordinated FL310 which was with a high altitude sector instead of the super high 350 and above sector. Corp X entered the super high sector west/O coordination. Traffic was heavy and I didn't have the time to check up on the manual controller's coordination.
Original NASA ASRS Text
Title: CORP JET WAS ALLOWED TO PENETRATE FROM ZAU INTO ZKC AIRSPACE WITHOUT HANDOFF OR COORD. OPERATIONAL DEVIATION.
Narrative: CORP JET X WAS CLBING OFF PWK VIA RBS FAM LNDG LIT. HE WAS INITIALLY CLBED TO FL280 AND THEN 310. AN ORD INBND WAS REROUTED FROM CGT ROUTING TO RBS PNT V227 PLANO ORD AT FL310. (THIS PUT HIM IN DIRECT CONFLICTION WITH THE ORD OUTBNDS TRAVELING S. THIS IS A COMMON OCCURRENCE SINCE FLOW CTL IS SO WORRIED ABOUT PROTECTING O'HARE. FLOW CTL FORCES THESE DEP SECTORS (RBS AND EON) TO WORK INBNDS DSNDING THROUGH OUTBNDS THAT ARE CLBING THROUGH THE SAME AIRSPACE.) CORP X WAS CLBED TO FL350 TO MISS THE ORD INBND REROUTE AND LOST HIS XPONDER. I TOLD THE MANUAL CTLR TO COORDINATE PRIMARY ONLY ACFT WITH ZKC. FL350 WAS WRITTEN ON THE STRIP, BUT THE MANUAL CTLR COORDINATED FL310 WHICH WAS WITH A HIGH ALT SECTOR INSTEAD OF THE SUPER HIGH 350 AND ABOVE SECTOR. CORP X ENTERED THE SUPER HIGH SECTOR W/O COORD. TFC WAS HEAVY AND I DIDN'T HAVE THE TIME TO CHK UP ON THE MANUAL CTLR'S COORD.
