It would be interesting to know the length of the delay. For example 10 minutes - no big deal. An hour - a different matter.


From the article:
"The airline industry and the Federal Aviation Administration blame the delays on outdated air traffic control technology, bad weather and increasing passenger traffic. Analysts say commercial airlines' use of smaller planes is partly to blame for increased congestion in the skies and on runways, as is an increase in general aviation aircraft used by corporate travelers."



Nearly 30 Percent of Flights Delayed

I ALWAYS have delays! Always have since the mid 80's! 10 min. to an hour on Departure... ALWAYS! Arrivals are very much on time if the departure isn't much more than half an hour delayed... have built it into my schedule for years!
