In fact, weather across the globe is the main reason for flight delays according to Air Traffic Controller Paul Diestelkamp.
“The Air Traffic System is so complex, so many different people have to work together and so many things have to align for every single flight to be able to fly when it is scheduled to fly,” Mr Diestelkamp told Express.co.uk.
“Equally, therefore, every flight is influenced by so many different things that could mean it gets delayed.
“Sometimes flights avoid bad weather and thunderstorms which means they may fly a bit longer than planned or fog means we can’t see the planes and the pilots can’t see either and have to fly only by their instruments.
