Experts explained why you should never book tickets for flights departing after 15:00.
A study by Expedia found that later flights are often the most problematic. Flights with a departure time after 15:00 have the highest chance of being canceled – by an average of 50%.
Analysts, based on the data, say that the best time to fly is late in the morning between 11:00 and 12:00. The worst time is from 18:00 to 18:59.
The Expedia study also found that the day travelers book their tickets can have a significant impact on ticket prices. It turns out that those who book tickets on Sundays instead of Fridays save about 20% on average on domestic flights. For international flights, savings average 10%.
In addition, historically, March is the most reliable month for travel with the shortest average delays.
