Question for you all, does anyone know why Monday morning flights are never late... yet.... Thursday night traffic makes me late regardless of city (nyc, ord, etc.) every week for the past few mos?

I imagine it’d because the morning flights are literally sitting there at the gate waiting for you to board, whereas the evening flights are at the tail end of upwards of 5 different flights? That being said, I have no clue how the aviation business works

This is correct. My roommate works at United and we have chatted about this.

Well I’m screwed and should just sell my house and move to the client city then. Nothing can save me.

Wondering this too

Every summer is just a shit show. Can’t wait for the winter.😩🙄

The past few months probably has to do with the limited plane supply from the grounding of the 737s. It's had a pretty large impact on many airlines. As to the difference between Monday and Thursday, Sunday is a slower travel day than Wednesday?

Evening flights just generally are late, especially on the east coast. Additionally, LGA/JFK renovations have completely bamboozled the east coast. JFK has actually closed 2 out of 4 runways.

Anecdotal? Does anyone have any statistics with a large sample size to confirm. Maybe we all just want to get home on Thursday and delays are that much more irritating.
