50% Chance more flight delays to take place over the festive season
Experts have estimated there is going to be a 50% increase in flight delays comparing to 2013 if things go the way they did.
Over 4 million people travelled in the festive season last year and are estimated to be the same this year.
Flights departing from Luton, Gatwick and Stansted were on average 15 minutes late or more last Christmas. More than 40% of the flights from Manchester and Heathrow were delayed by at least quarter of an hour and are estimated to be the same this year, if not more.
Flight delay compensation
If you are involved in a flight that was delayed for over 3 hours, then you could be entitled to a pay out of flight delay compensation on behalf of the airline.
