A recent ranking placed Germany's Frankfurt and Munich airports among the worst in the world this summer for delayed flights. We'd like to hear about your experiences.


Whether it's your flight being delayed by hours - or even cancelled - or your luggage going missing, travellers are facing lots of disruption at the moment, including in Germany.


The below graph summing up the 'airports to avoid this summer' shows which travel hubs have had the most delayed flights between May 26th and July 19th. 


Canada’s Toronto Pearson International Airport topped the list as the worst airport to fly out of during this time period, with more than half of its flights being delayed.

And Germany's largest airport at Frankfurt saw 45.4 percent of its flights see delays, while Munich airport had 40.4 percent of flights disrupted.
