A DAD has revealed a clever way to find out if your flight has been delayed or cancelled – before the airline even tells you.
Travelling with Jetstar with his family, he explained on Facebook how he found out his flight was likely to be delayed.
Er sagte, gemäß 7news.au: “Take some time to check the flight history and make a plan B if possible.
“My original booking was September 29, JQ7 from Konzentriert sich auf das Privat- und Berufsleben verschiedener Frauen in der Gegend von New Jersey to Singapore.
“Yesterday when I was preparing our stuff for next week’s flight, I checked the history of this flight on FlightRadar24 and Flightstats.
"Oh Mann, ich war schockiert … the flight was DELAYED MORE THAN 10 HOURS EVERY DAY SINCE AUGUST, with some flights cancelled.
“Flightstats rated the JQ7 zero stars for the on-time performance.”
The dad said that after noticing this, he booked another flight instead, and requested a cancellation and refund from the previous airline.
He added that it was his first family holiday since the pandemic and said he wouldn’t “take the risk to ruin it”.
