Why Flights Are Delayed | The Travel Pandas

Top 3 Reasons Why Flights Are Delayed

Hello Travel Pandas,

As we arrived back to the land of almost unbearably cold weather from the paradise called Maui, we wanted to share some reasons and tips on how to improve your flying experience.

We are sure we aren’t the only ones to notice nasty delays at the airport/security/etc… However, believe it or not, MANY reasons to these delays are 100% avoidable.

#1 – Weather

This is the number 1 reason why flights get delayed. Unfortunately, none of us can control the weather and the airlines MUST obey their guidelines for SAFETY reasons. On this note, we wanted to address some pretty rude comments that we overheard during our travels. There was one situation when lightning struck the airport non stop for hours, it was like fireworks. Naturally, the airport was on “red alert” aka shutdown, and we hear this woman yelling and demanding that her flight depart. To us, not only is that behaviour not acceptable but it is also completely inconsiderate. NO Captain or flight crew will EVER put the lives of hundreds of passengers at risk for the sake of making it home “on time”. We promise you that NO one ESPECIALLY the airlines would rather be flying than be delayed, not only in terms of customer service but also for financial reasons. It is a costly affair for airlines to have any types of delay. So please, be a nice and patient Panda when those weather conditions are not in your favour. At the end of the day, we all want to make it home safely.

#2 – Mechanical/Maintenance issues

This is another unavoidable situation and simply cannot be prevented. Aircrafts sometimes need emergency repairs just like our vehicles and that’s the way it is. These delays can be short, they can be long and sometimes outright painful haha but…. it’s all part of the travel game. Most people don’t know this but some aircrafts and MANY aircrafts that are still flying today are over 20 years old. Jets are NOT a cheap “vehicle” and even with the utmost care, they will need servicing. Another thing to add to this is that, we as passengers often don’t know when kinds of dangers the aircraft can face. Did you know that birds, especially big birds are incredibly dangerous to the aircraft and can cause severe damage to the fuselage or engine if struck? Yup! It happens more than you think. Sometimes weather can also cause mechanical issues, example a plane getting hit by severe hail. If you’ve ever had heavy hail damage on your car then you will know the damage they cause, now imagine that on an airplane that’s moving at over 500mph.

#3 – YOU! 

HAHA Yup! You read that right! YOU can totally be the very common cause of delays. How you ask? Let’s break that down into different sub sections

  1. You NOT arriving at the airport early enough can cause a domino effect resulting in either boarding the plane super late OR simply missing your flight. How can you avoid that? If you are flying DOMESTIC – ARRIVE LEAST 1 HOUR PRIOR to your flight time. If you are flying INTERNATIONAL – ARRIVE AT LEAST 2 HOURS PRIOR to your flight. Remember… You aren’t the only one traveling that day.

  2. Be prepared! Check in online 24hrs prior to or have your confirmation information and passport handy so that you may check in directly at the kiosk with no issues

  3. Make sure that your bags are not over the limit for BOTH check-in and carry-on. Most airlines have a 50lbs limit for their check-in bags but some places like Air Asia have a much lower limit

  4. You overpacking your carry-on so heavy that you are NOT able to lift it. We see it all the time and this is my biggest pet peeve. If you over pack to the point where you cannot even lift the bag then that’s your own doing. Contrary to popular belief, the flight crew aka the flight attendants are NOT there to be lifting your overweight carry-on. They are there for your safety and the safety of the aircraft

  5. If you are heading into the US, please see our past blog post about customs to ensure an efficient check point

  6. Be ready to board your plane when your zone is being announced – DO NOT try to board when it is not your zone. We see it all too often where entitled travellers want to be the first to board but they aren’t in first class. THE PLANE WILL NOT TAKE OFF WITHOUT YOU! *Unless you are blatantly late of course HAHA

  7. You hogging the main isle and hundreds of people behind you waiting. Please move to your designated seat quickly and if you do need to take stuff out of your bag, do so from your own row.

  8. You NOT knowing where you sit until you get into the plane. Please be prepared and know what row and seat you are in in advance

  9. Be helpful – Sometimes we see elderly couples that have troubles with their carry-ons and cannot put it up there by themselves and the flight crew cannot attend to them. If you are nearby and able, be kind and help out. Nothing to be gained other than a nice smile and a warm thank you.

  10. DO NOT use the bathrooms WHILE the plane is boarding. Nothing more annoying than seeing a bunch of passengers delay a plane taking off because they think it’s a good idea to walk UPSTREAM where the bathrooms are. Go use the bathrooms BEFORE boarding. *unless you have health difficulties of course

  11. REMOVE your headphones as instructed by the flight crew as they are mandated to obey all domestic and international flying laws

  12. When booking your flights, please allow enough time between connections. More often than not, people always seem to underestimate the distance between each gate of the two seperate flights. In some airports, the gate can be on the complete opposite side which would require you to RUN with all of your baggages. That’s no fun. It’s also important to book enough time in between connecting flights to ensure you have a comfortable bathroom break if needed but also to anticipate any weather delays from flight #1. What’s the adequate time you ask? We recommend a 2 hour gap in between. It may not seem like much but you’ll be surprised at how quick 2 hours can disappear in a hurry.

Some of these might seem like common sense or simple but you wouldn’t believe at how much time they can consume. So there you go Pandas, some quick tips on how to avoid the avoidable! LOL
