It's official: This winter was the worst for fliers in the 20 years that the government has been collecting data. During the first three months of this year, U.S. airlines canceled 4.6 percent of their flights, the Department of Transportation announced Tuesday. Mother Nature is mostly to blame, with a relentless wave of snow and ice storms paralyzing airline traffic across the nation. But airlines are also quicker to cancel flights these days, sometimes a day in advance of a storm. The shift in strategy came in response to new government regulations, improvements to overall operations and because canceling quickly reduces expenses/Associated Press. More here.
Question: When were you last affected by a canceled flight? What did you do?
