It’s no secret that air travel around the world has been impacted in 2022 by a variety of factors including labour shortages, Covid-19 illness and more. It’s beyond frustrating to plan a trip only to have your flight delayed or worse, outright cancelled.

According to Forbes, the surge in demand, with inadequate resources to support it, has resulted in thousands of flights delayed or canceled this summer. By July, more flights had been canceled this year than all of 2021.
