The last time my flight got cancelled was an early morning AA MD-80 going from CMH to DFW last September. It was cancelled because of broken rear stairs.

So far, I've been lucky enough to have only one cancelled flight. *knocks on wood* It was last August, a UA 772 from DEN to ORD. That flight was a connection, so you can imagine my disappointment when I stepped off the plane in DEN, went to a flight info screen, and saw that my next flight was cancelled. An unspecified maintenance issue kept the plane on the ground.


Flying friendly for a while, but is that a widget I see in the rear-view mirror?

My last cancellation was on July 29, 2010. I was scheduled to fly LAX-DFW-AMA on American. My early morning flight from LAX to DFW was cancelled at around 2 AM. I was re-scheduled on a routing LAX-SFO-DFW-AMA. I arrived in Amarillo on the next flight later than the one I had booked, and I had a new experience in SFO on the flight to DFW. That 767 flight was the captain's last before retirement, and we went through a water cannon salute on the taxiway in SFO.

My last one was MUC-BHX, although no reason was given and passengers were half way through boarding when it was cancelled. Re-routed MUC-FRA-BHX.

My last (and only) cancelled flight was ZRH-JFK in December 2010. I flew in from LJU in the morning and returned back on the evening flight. It was cancelled because of the big snowstorm in NY. I was supposed to fly with LX.

My one and only cancelled flight was FR BTS-STN, due to the airport being closed due to fog. I was rebooked the next day. Shame as I thought BTS was CATIII certified? Anyway, I had trouble finding accommodation as there was a World Cup football match on and all the hostels were full of Spaniards, but eventually found a bed, and subsequently had a better day than the previous, with some beers, food and additional sightseeing with 2 hostel roommates, and Indian and an Israeli! Good times! Just had to call in to the office, "Sorry I can't come to work tomorrow, I'm stuck in Bratislava. Can I implement the 'inclement weather policy'? No? Oh well, I'll have to take an additional day's leave then".

Last cancelled flight was Buenos Aires Aeropark to Puerto Iguazú February 28th 2011). The reason was a strike by ATC. After waiting for 5 hours in the terminal, they finally canceled the flight. However we shouldn't be in Buenos Aires but Andes canceled my flight from Salta to Puerto Iguazú for reason unknown to me (fortunately they informed us a week in advance, unlike some other people who discovered the cancellation at the airport).

Last time was in December of 2007. I was supposed to fly OMA-DCA with Midwest, with the plane coming in from MKE. It was in MSN for a charter before that, and wasn't able to get deiced. In the time they were waiting for more fluid, the storm going on there got worse, so it ended up two legs behind and got our flight cancelled. Fortunately my family was able to get the last three seats on the 6AM flight the next day.

I've had several since the new year.
One for engine unable to start after pushback which they could not fix quickly, and two others cancelled due to destination weather (one snow, other serious thunderstorms).

In 2008 when Virgin Blue, now Virgin Australia, cancelled my flight from SYD-MEL due to their computer system completely crashing. I had to rebook on QF at my expense as they would not put me in a hotel overnight, they however kept my flight as future credit which I used towards a MEL-BNE flight in Summer 2009

I was due to fly to Spain last December. You may recall that the Spanish ATC dispute led to the closure of airspace. My planned flight EK141 04 Dec 2010 DXB - MAD was cancelled in consequence.

Fortunately that is the only time I have had a flight cancelled, although I have had to cancel trips due to family illness, etc.

My last 3 cancelled flights have all been between MKE and ORD. Every time was because the weather had ORD so far behind that it wasn't worth running a flight up to MKE and back. The whole round trip is about 90 minutes... including the taxi and turn time!

So... I took the 90-minute shuttle bus ride between the MKE and ORD for $30. And yeah, UA refunded me for not taking their flight.

My one and only canceled flight was a United Express flight from RDU to ORD. The weather in Chicago was really bad that day, and after being delayed due to a ground stop, we finally boarded and started to taxi to the runway, only to be told that we would have to wait even longer. After sitting on the taxiway for at least an hour, passengers were understabdibly starting to get a little bit antsy. The FA, probably not wanting the situation to escalate into one of those "passengers stuck on the tarmac for hours" ordeals that make the news, told us we could go back to the gate, but if we did they'd have to cancel the flight. She took an informal poll of the passengers, and most us preferred to to go back to the gate, having already missed our connections anyway. So we went back to the gate, the flight got cancelled, and I got rebooked to my destination via IAD.

Last cancellation : ORY-PGF with AF on December, 24th, 2010 mid day flight.
This was due to snow in Paris and crazy strong wind in PGF!
As I've been advised by text message early morning, I still had chance to take the car and drive the 900km in horrible conditions.
