People often know one reason why a flight is delayed or canceled, which is bad weather, but there are other reasons that may delay or cancel your plans.
1. Each aircraft has a complex daily schedule: one aircraft performs many flights on a daily basis, a slight delay on the first flight in the morning, late arrival of a passenger, or delayed air traffic control, the program may scatter throughout the day.
2. Strict rules for dealing with flight delay: When the types of delays mentioned above occur, the crew may not be able to make the next flight because it will "increase" the number of hours worked. This may mean calling a new crew to make the trip.
3. Bad weather in other parts of the world: It may be sunny and beautiful at the departure airport, but the weather may be bad in the country you will visit. Air traffic control units make room for aircraft with "low visibility", which means that other aircraft are delayed.
4 - waiting for passengers from another trip: Some trips are waiting for passengers coming from another trip, to complete their journey with that company, but the delay of those passengers will require the second flight not to take off and waiting for arrival.
5. Waiting for late passengers or baggage: Delay in loading checked baggage or non-arrival of passengers on time makes boarding a bit late.
