One Of The Most Delayed Air Routes In The Country


If you’ve ever worked on a movie, it’s usually a matter of hurry-up-and-wait, but that’s a joy compared to flying, which has become a case of wait-and-wait-and-wait-and-wait-some-more-then-hurry.

But some air routes are more delayed than others. A recent report says that Chicago has two of the most delay-prone airports in the country. The Windy city has become the “When do we leave?” city. And as for our own area, JFK and LaGuardia have gotten a bit better in the last few years, but Newark is generally later than a pregnant woman. In fact, about 24% of the flights there are held back (though fortunately the pilots totally graduated).

The worst case scenario is apparently going from Chicago to Newark or vice versa. (And that’s especially upsetting since getting out of Newark is to me an urgent priority.)

Chances are you will be so delayed on that route that you’ll be able to watch the entire Twilight series before you get there.

Eeek. Don’t go!
