Tarmac-Delay Rule Making U.S. Flight Cancellations More Likely, GAO Says

As if you needed another reason to charter a private jet with JetOptions, now a GAO study shows that commercial airlines are 24 to 33% more likely to cancel flights:

The U.S. government’s effort to eliminate longer delays on airport tarmacs has made it more likely that airlines will cancel flights, according to a study by the Government Accountability Office.

U.S. airlines were 24 percent more likely to more than three times as likely to cancel a flight in 2010 after the three-hour tarmac delay rule went into effect, compared with the previous year, according to the GAO report.

Gus Lira, Vice President of JetOptions says their clients “worry less about cancellations when chartering a private jet.”
