Against all expectations, US flight delays and cancellations decreased over the July 4th weekend. For Saturday, Jetblue and Southwest were the hardest hit, followed by the American, Delta and United, according to FlightAware.com data.
About 6,000 flights from the United States have been delayed nationally and internationally, while cancellations have reached 654, which have been significantly reduced, according to Travel Pulse.
JetBlue and Southwest were particularly affected by the weather, which caused their operations to be cut nearly in half with more than 1,000 flight delays on Saturday. American reached 900 flight delays, 28% of its operations, United recorded 490 flight delays, 21% and Delta more than 530 flights, or 18% of its operations.
The airports with the most delays on Saturday were: Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport with 252, John F. Kennedy International Airport with 248, Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport with 214, Charlotte Douglas International Airport with 193, and Chicago O’Hare International Airport with 192 Boston Logan and Denver International each had more than 150 flight delays. As of 10 a.m. Sunday, more than 210 cancellations and 940 delays, according to FlightAware.
As mentioned REPORTUR.usWith the itinerary canceled and disrupted at US airports, Ed Bastian, CEO of Delta, apologizes to travelers, saying it is unacceptable. (Chaos in the US: Delta Apologizes for Cancellations and Delays.)
“If you have experienced delays and cancellations recently, I apologize. We have spent years establishing Delta as a leader in reliability, and while most of our flights continue to operate on time, this level of disruption and uncertainty is unacceptable,”
