Your flight is canceled or delayed — here’s what you should do next

By Summer Hull | The Points Guy

To say it in the nicest way possible, air travel is a total and complete nightmare these days.

Sure, some flights and travelers are fortunate and come out the other side unscathed, but hundreds of thousands of other recent travelers haven’t been so lucky.

Just this past weekend, nearly 15,000 flights were canceled or delayed — and that was without any big precipitating event, such as a massive storm. Instead, it was mostly just thunderstorms during a busy summer weekend where one thing led to another and airlines were struggling to keep up.

Unfortunately, it probably won’t get much better anytime soon. Since the factors causing these system backlogs and breakdowns aren’t as fleeting as snowstorms, it’s likely to keep happening periodically in the coming months.

So in light of all the recent — and likely still to come — delays and cancellations, here are tips on how to decrease your chances of getting stuck, and increase your chances of getting to your destination as quickly as possible.
