Airline flight cancellations and mishandled baggage rates were at historical lows in November, according to a report released Tuesday by the U.S. Department of Transportation.
The Air Travel Consumer Report said airlines canceled 0.29 percent of their scheduled domestic flights in November 2016, the lowest rate compared with any month since January 1995. The November figure also surpassed the previous low of 0.33 percent in September 2016, the report said.
Also reaching a milestone low was the rate of mishandled baggage. It was 2.02 reports per 1,000 passengers in November, the lowest rate since the Transportation Department began collecting the data in 1987.
