Longest vliegtuigvertraging of 2016 lasted more than 43 hours
The longest vliegtuigvertraging of the last year, lasted 43 hours and 19 minutes. It was a TUIfly flight from Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic to the airport.
That has EUClaim researched, a company that injured passengers to assist.
The delay is started by a technical fault on the original plane. The replacement aircraft from HiFly collided then while taxiing at a passagiersbrug.
The delay ran even further by the fact that a replacement aircraft had to come in and the crew had to rest before the passengers could go home. The landing at amsterdam airport Schiphol was scheduled on 22 november, but that was eventually 24 november.
Last year there was a delay of 47 hours and 15 minutes (Bonaire-Amsterdam) at the top of the list.
