How early do flights get cancelled?

Last updated on April 25, 2023

Flights can get cancelled at any time, but typically they will be cancelled early in the day if the weather conditions, an aircraft mechanical issue, or an air traffic control delay is anticipated. Airlines may also cancel certain flights due to lack of demand, and may cancel long-haul flights if the number of expected passengers is far below the minimum required in order to make the flight viable.
