Have to Fly? Here Are Some Tips to Make the Best of Air Travel

Air travel has reached pre-pandemic levels for the first time since the covid-19 pandemic began, and summer traveling is boosting those numbers. It has not been easy for airlines to quickly re-adjust to pre-pandemic “normality” as consumers begin flying again.

Anyone who has flown (or attempted to) in the last few months will report that there are labor and staff shortages, flights are being cancelled left and right, and luggage is being lost. There have been a record number of airline cancellations, as more than 116,000 flights have been cancelled this year. Flight cancellations are highest at New York, Florida, and Newark, N.J., airports.
