Why Thousands Of Flights Are Delayed Or Canceled This Week | Forbes

Another day, another onslaught of flight disruptions for air travelers. Even before 9 a.m. Eastern Time on Monday, airports around the world were already tallying more than 10,000 flight delays and 1,700 cancellations, according to FlightAware tracking data. Those number could easily double by day’s end.

Nearly four in five travelers (79%) who have taken an overnight trip outside their local area this year have experienced at least one travel-related issue, according to a new Bankrate.com survey. These issues include high prices (57%), long waits (29%), poor customer service (27%), hard-to-find availability (26%), lost money due to cancelled or disrupted plans (14%) or something else (4%).

With the July Fourth holiday weekend now in the rearview mirror, Asia and Europe have emerged as hubs of air travel nightmares, with flight cancellations and delays surpassing the levels seen recently in the United States, demonstrating the global headwinds faced by the air travel industry.
