USA: multiple delays at airports

Important test ahead of the end of year holidays; ranking of worst airports

In the United States, Thanksgiving celebrations are approaching (November 23) and the airports are seeing the first delayed and cancelled flight connections. A phenomenon linked to multiple factors: staff shortages, bad weather conditions, increase in the number of flights. It's an important test in view of the boom in travel bookings for the Christmas and New Year holidays. 

Yesterday in the main American airports there were a few dozen canceled connections in each of the main airports. It could have been worse but that doesn't mean airline managers can breathe a sigh of relief. Just read the analysis by the Deloitte study center: 48% of Americans plan to travel during the Christmas holidays, with an increase of +31% compared to 2022, the year in which unprecedented chaos was recorded.

For this reason, the company Upgraded Points, a site specializing in the aviation sector, has published a study to help passengers travel with more awareness. It is the result of an analysis of data collected by the US Department of Transportation and which concerns the 100 busiest US airports and the 10 largest airlines.

The average percentage of delayed flights from American airports is 25%, with the worst being that of El Paso (32.8%), followed by Puerto Rico (30.7%) and Albuquerque (30.6%). Among the worst airlines in terms of punctuality are: Frontier Airlines (31.9%) in first place, then Southwest Airlines (31.8%) and JetBlue (30.8%); followed by Allegiant Air (29.2%) and Spirit Airlines (28.1%).
