This summer, flying has been significantly disrupted, with flight cancellations being one of the most frequent problems.

According to tracking website FlightAware, about 950 US flights were cancelled on Sunday as the airline industry struggles with a spike in travel demand as well as a labour shortage following the outbreak.

Flights between May 27 and July 31 indicate that Thursday is the worst day to travel, according to data.

According to data from AirHelp, on a typical Thursday, more than 3.6% of flights were cancelled. Additionally, it revealed that 3.2% of Friday flights were cancelled.

Wednesday and Saturday, which both had 2.7% of flights cancelled, and Sunday, which saw 2.5% of flights cancelled, were the next worst days.

Monday and Tuesday were the best days to travel, with 1.9% and 1.8% of flights being cancelled, respectively.

Friday was the least punctual day, with only 69% of flights departing on schedule. In contrast, Tuesday saw the highest percentage of on-time flights (78%), making it the greatest on-time status day.

Families being booked on separate planes, misplaced luggage, and flying pandemonium have all been reported by passengers.
