Good News About the Airlines!

One of the biggest worries among air travelers is losing their luggage. If you are hesitant to travel because of this, fear no more! According to USA Today, last year the airlines mishandled fewer bags despite an increase in the number of people flying. The airlines have new, effective technology that helps them trace and locate bags. The baggage claims area has traditionally been a place where many bags are lost, so SITA (Société Internationale de Télécommunications Aéronautiques) has focused on this and over the past six years this has drastically improved. The rate of mishandled bags per 1,000 passengers has fallen 53.2% in that time, saving the industry 2.1 billion dollars since 2007. We get our clients wonderful airline prices and air/hotel/car rental packages. Call us to check on availability and best prices for you. Contact me at: 203-221-3171, 888-499-7245, email us at:

Another worry among travelers is will their flight arrive on time? Another USA Today article offers good news on this front as well. The latest data from the Transportation Department proves that Delta led the nation’s biggest network airlines in getting customers to their destinations on time last year. Joshua Marks, executive director of the American Aviation Institute, attributed the success of flights arriving on their scheduled time to the weather. 86.64% of Delta’s flights arrived within 15 minutes of the scheduled arrival time. Delta has announced that they have made it a priority to get their planes to the destination on time and to accomplish this they have more spare planes, more maintenance workers, and also offer employees a bonus of 100 dollars each if their performance improves in these key areas. United Airlines and American Airlines were the most delayed last year because United mishandled the most number of bags, while American canceled the most flights.
