EUclaim data reveals that 311,550 passengers were delayed in 2014

EUclaim has used some of the 85 million pieces of flight data it collects daily to take a look back at 2014 and some of the highs and lows of flight delays.  A staggering 311,550 passengers have suffered due to 2162 flight delays or cancellations up to November this year.  Just under half of those delays occurred on 24th and 25th June when some 152,000 passengers were delayed due to 1014 incidents, they were the worst of the year and due to strike action by French  Air Traffic Controllers,  and so sadly air travellers were not entitled to flight delay compensation. The 16th of November saw the least amount of incidents with 12 delays affecting some 1,800 passengers.

So, here’s a calendar of the highs and lows of flight delays in 2014
