Airlines Set Traffic Record Last Year

2007 was the year of the airline delay...and the full plane. Airlines carried 769.4 million domestic and international passengers in 2007, a 3.3% increase from the year prior. This coincided with the 2nd worst year for airline delays.

Planes were nearly 80% full on average over the year.

BusinessWeek breaks down the numbers and discusses the problems with Southwest Airlines in their article HERE.
