Three NYC Area Airports in Top 5 With Most Canceled Flights

It’s not a secret that LaGuardia airport in Queens, NY is a terrible airport. It’s only accessed by buses, not subway, traffic has been crazy lately with all the construction and now it also tops the nation in canceled flights. The airport reported 3,018 canceled flights in 2017 — 3.23 percent of a total 93,326 scheduled flights, according to an analysis by travel insurance company InsureMyTrip. Winter Storm Stella in March was partially to blame for the uncoveted record.
