Schiphol ranked 4th-worst airport globally for delays this summer (surprise, surprise)

After months of disruptions, Amsterdam’s Schiphol Airport has been ranked among the worst five airports in the world for delays.

It joins seven other European airports in the world’s top 10 worst airports with the most delayed flights this summer, according to CNN Travel.

Of course, it’s not like our expectations were high: Schiphol has been suffering from mismanagement, staff shortages, lost luggage, and overcrowding in recent months. πŸ€·β€β™€οΈ

Cancellations, much?

Schiphol airport isn’t doing too well in the cancellations department either.

With 3.9% of all aircraft being cancelled this summer, Schiphol still managed to place last in the 10 worst airports for cancellations. Maybe it’s time for us to #Cancel Schiphol. 🀨
