Study: Flight Delays Cost Passengers Billions
STEVE INSKEEP, host:
And today's last word in business is flight delay.
There is now a price tag on the frustration and anger those delays can create. The Federal Aviation Administration says flight delays cost airline passengers - not the airlines, airline passengers - near $17 billion per year. That is the cost of passengers' time and the money they spend on $4 bottles of water, $8 slices of pizza and a hotel room after the storm shuts down O'Hare.
That's the business news on MORNING EDITION, from NPR News. I'm Steve Inskeep.
