A study on airlines, airports, and which to avoid during the holiday’s was recently published by Price4Limo. They gathered a year’s worth of daily cancellation and delay data to determine which airlines and airports have struggled the most to provide uninterrupted travel to their customers.

These airlines have experienced the worst cancellations and delays over the past year:

“Opposite of how Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) performed, Sacramento International Airport (SMF) performed as one of the best airports in the country,” Travis Salat, editor-in-chief at Price4Limo, wrote in correspondence with the OBSERVER. “As noted above, you can see that it ranked in the top five best airports for both delays and flight cancellations with only 795 total cancellations during the period.”

Think about who, where, and when you’re flying this holiday season to avoid any unnecessary delays or cancellations. 

Happy Holidays!
