July Saw Longer Flight Delays

The government said on Monday that the flight delays in July, during which planes were waiting on the tarmac, were longer than the delays of the previous eight months combined.  A total of 28 planes were stuck on the tarmac for more than three hours at various American airports during the month of July.  This happened at the peak of summer travel.  Eighteen of those flights were operated by American carriers and 16 of those were delayed at Chicago's O'Hare International Airport on July 13, which was a day of severe thunderstorms in the area.

One international flight, Caribbean Airlines flight 526 from Georgetown, Guyana to New York's JFK Airport, was on the tarmac for more than four hours and the airline may now be facing a heavy fine as a result.  If a flight, either domestic or international, is on the tarmac for more than three hours, then they can be fined as much as $27,000 per passenger.  The last time there were comparable delays of more than three hours in a month was October, 2011.

The above article is a summary.  Please see the source article at Google News.
