Global Survey Shows Travellers Still Struggle With Lack of Information About Delayed and Cancelled Flights, Says Cirium

  • New survey reveals well over a third of travellers have had to pay more to make alternative travel plans following a delayed flight
  • Nearly two thirds would be likely to use an app which alerted family, friends and work colleagues if their flight was disrupted
  • Cirium, the aviation data and analytics experts, say flight delays and cancellations cost airlines over US$30bn a year

Over a third of global travellers (36%) say they don’t get enough information about delayed and cancelled flights, according to aviation and data analytics experts at Cirium.

A new survey for Cirium reveals the impact of flight delays and cancellations and the need for better management of flight disruption, with more communication via proactive flight updates for affected passengers.

Almost two thirds (61%) of those surveyed said that they would be likely to use an app which alerted their friends, family or company about their delay.

In 2018, approximately 3.9 million flights – or 10,700 a day – were delayed by over 30 minutes or cancelled globally, affecting more than 470 million passenger journeys around the world.

Flight delays and cancellation cost airlines globally US$30bn a year in lost revenue, in addition to costs borne by their passengers.

Airline flight delays and cancellations are caused by a wide range of factors, such as technical issues with aircraft, bad weather, air traffic control problems, strikes, medical diversions and congested airports, among many others.

The global YouGov study conducted for Cirium in the UK, US, UAE and China, showed more than a third of travellers worldwide (35%) who had experienced a delayed or cancelled flight, did not find it easy to change their travel plans, with well over a third (40%) left out of pocket after being forced to pay more to make alternative travel plans.

Airlines also had to bear the massive cost of disruption with flight delays and cancellations costing the equivalent of US$7 for every departing passenger – slightly less than the airline’s net profit per person per departing flight.

Jeremy Bowen, Cirium Chief Executive Officer, said: Flight delays and cancellations are an unfortunate aspect of modern air travel and can have a big impact on travellers, whether flying for business or leisure. We recognize that the cost of disruption for airlines is also a significant problem. While our survey reveals well over a third of passengers still have to pay more for alternative travel plans, airlines can proactively issue flight alerts ahead of travel and re-allocate tickets without fees to take the sting out of flight disruption. We all want to travel stress free and get people to where they want to go, which is why at Cirium we work closely with airlines around the world on initiatives which reduce the impact of disrupted flights.”

The survey revealed nearly two thirds (57%) of those polled only found out about their flight delay or cancellation once they had reached the airport. When asked 29% said that they would prefer to be informed about a delay through a text alert with another two thirds (61%) saying they would use an app which alerted their friends, family or company about their delay.

More than double (48%) said that they would be most frustrated if their leisure flight was delayed or cancelled compared to the 21% who would be most frustrated if a business flight was cancelled.

Over a third of global travellers would be most sympathetic if a flight was disrupted due to bad weather (35%) followed by technical issues with their aircraft (30%). However, only a tiny 5% would be most sympathetic with delays or cancellations due to problems caused by air traffic control.

Cirium enables the wider travel industry to manage the impact of disruption with intelligent data and analytics solutions. For example, Cirium analyzes more than 70 million passenger journeys annually to provide meaningful insights and keep the travel industry in motion.

This data is used by a wide range of customers, such as airlines and airports, to improve the travel experience by smart devices and metasearch engines, like Google, Amazon and Expedia, to provide information directly to passengers, enabling them to make more informed choices when on the move.

Cirium’s data and analytics divisions have been the first to bring innovative solutions to market, such as the first to automate the ticket waiver process during times of flight delays and cancellations.

It employs over 400 technologists, analysts, data scientists and market experts in the UK, US, EuropeMiddle EastIndiaand Asia-Pacific.

The group has significantly grown in recent years with the acquisition of leading data intelligence companies, including Ascend, Innovata, Diio and FlightStats.

Suzy Says: Consumers Are More Likely To Learn About Healthy Food Trends From Social Media Than News Sources

Suzy, a leading consumer insights platform that provides “actionable insights at the speed of culture,” asked U.S. consumers where they are most likely to first hear about the latest in healthy food trends. The results, powered by the platform’s on-demand network of more than one million consumers, may surprise you. Regardless of their interest in health, all survey respondents are most likely to hear about the latest in healthy food trends from their friends, family or social media, as opposed to television, blogs, magazines or online news sources.

Below are Suzy’s in-depth findings on the ways consumers are most likely to first hear about healthy food trends.

Suzy says healthy eaters are most likely to learn about the latest healthy food trends via the following:

  1. Facebook – 17 percent
  2. Instagram – 15 percent
  3. Friends or Family – 13 percent
  4. Blogs – 8 percent
  5. Television – 8 percent

Non-healthy eaters are most likely to learn about the latest healthy food trends via the following:

  1. Facebook – 20 percent
  2. Friends or Family – 19 percent
  3. Instagram – 10 percent
  4. Online News Sources – 10 percent
  5. Television – 10 percent

“These results highlight the power that the collective voice of consumers has in today’s marketplace,” said Matt Britton, founder & CEO of Suzy. “When social networks play a larger role in alerting consumers to healthy food trends than traditional media outlets, you can see how important it is to create products, packaging, brands and advertisements that truly resonate with your target audience, and inspire them to share the information with others.”

Called the “Siri for brands,” Suzy is a consumer intelligence platform that unlocks critical consumer insights to help organizations make better and more informed decisions—faster. Like having a focus group right in your pocket, Suzy brings the voice of real consumers directly to brands within minutes, so they can better understand their customers.

The platform currently serves some of the biggest brands in the world, including Coca-Cola, Procter & Gamble, Johnson & Johnson, Citibank, Verizon, Nintendo and Nestle. These leading companies validate critical assumptions with Suzy, so they can focus on creating compelling new products, developing effective marketing strategies, and validating direct offers that increase conversions and drive growth.

This survey was conducted online within the United States by Suzy on survey was run from Feb 27-28. This online survey is not based on a probability sample and therefore no estimate of theoretical sampling error can be calculated.
