(Thrillist)   It's a sad state of affairs for airlines when Southwest wasn't even the worst for cancelling flights in 2022   ( divider line

That's because the data is for the "12 months ending October 2022".

wxboy: That's because the data is for the "12 months ending October 2022".

Im willing to bet even in next years data set Southwest wont top out for most cancellations. While they had one terrible week there are other airlines that are awful all year round.

The rankings are probably in percentages, so Southwest probably won't suffer much having so many flights.  Allegiant is among the smallest of the carriers but it scores poorly becauses of the percentage of cancellations and late arrivals.

My brother-in-law was dumb enough to use Allegiant for a two-hop flight and he ended up stranded in Las Vegas.

Yeah Allegiant sucks. My last two attempts to fly with them failed. The worst thing is their SOP to string you along all day after a maintenance problem, tell you a spare plane is flying in, and the tell you the crew has timed out in the evening and therefore it's not their fault and aren't doing squat for you.

I've done a shiatload of flying and they are the only airline I refuse to fly.
