About 22 per cent of do­mes­tic flights were de­layed or can­celled last year, ac­cord­ing to the Bureau of In­fra­struc­ture, Trans­port and Re­gional Eco­nom­ics, po­ten­tially hit­ting 20 mil­lion trav­ellers with ex­tra costs and in­con­ve­nience. There were more than 16,000 dis­rupted do­mes­tic flights in March with Qan­tas the most punc­tual air­line (87.2 per cent on time) and Tig­erAir (76 per cent) the worst. Com­par­i­son web­site finder.com.au says the fig­ures re­in­force the case for com­pen­sa­tion laws.
