Why would a flight be cancelled?

Last updated on April 25, 2023

A flight could be cancelled for a variety of reasons, including severe weather, mechanical problems, crew shortages, ATC delays, airspace restrictions, or conflicts with schedules of aircraft operators. Unexpected events such as air traffic control strikes and security alerts can also lead to flight cancellations. Additionally, flight cancellations can be caused by higher than expected numbers of passengers on any given flight, leading to an overbooking situation.
