MiseryMap tracks weather, flight delays in real time


Approximately zero people enjoy flying over the holidays. Not only is it more expensive and the airports more crowded, in many areas, the weather is also just worse. How bad is it and where? FlightAware's Misery Map shows you in real time.

The map shows the proportion of on-time flights at major airports compared to delays and cancellations. The East Coast was particularly hit over the Thanksgiving holiday, courtesy of the Nor'easter wrecking havoc. The map is also interactive, so if you hover over an area, you can see the routes that are particularly miserable.


It might not be as useful a tool for travelers as, say, FlightStats, which offers a greater level of detail. On the other hand, it could make those of us who aren't flying this holiday season more thankful. Stay safe and calm, all you travelers. The holiday traveling season is only beginning.
