Allen J. Sheinman, managing editor of Meetings & Conventions magazineairplaneWith Memorial Day weekend coming up, millions of Americans will go through the time-honored ritual of assessing the traffic if they want to go anywhere, whether by car, plane or pogo stick. The folks at AirHelp, who help people get compensation for delays and cancellations as a passenger-rights company, collected all sorts of data from last year's holiday weekend. They found that over 825,000 passengers in the U.S. experienced flight disruptions from more 8,500 flights over the holiday. This translates to approximately 20 percent of all flights over the extended weekend in 2017 that were disrupted, their passengers suffering delays or cancellations. Curious as to how your planned flight stacks up this year? Here are the 10 routes most likely to experience trouble.
