Your chances of getting on a plane depend on which airline you book your trip to. Frontier and Spirit took first place in the probability of cancellation, they do it twice as often as the other three carriers.
For example, American Airlines and Southwest Airlines have the largest number of passengers who were denied boarding, but in percentage terms this figure is not high, based on the total number of passengers of these airlines.
The data shows that the total number of failures decreases, dropping from the 4,38 passenger on the 100 000 in the 2016 year to the entire 2,09 passenger on the 100 000 in the 2017 year.
