Flying this summer? You might want to avoid airports in London, Paris, Frankfurt, and Amsterdam, among others.

The delays at London Heathrow Airport are so bad that the airport authority asked airlines to stop selling tickets for outbound travel this summer, limiting passenger traffic to 100,000 departures per day.

Meanwhile, two North American airports, namely Toronto-Pearson International in Canada and Orlando International in Florida, are also on the top ten list, based on data from FlightAware, a service that tracks such information.

Other European airports on the top ten list include Munich Airport and Athens International Airport, while in Oceania, Sydney Kingsford Smith Airport is also on the list.

Among aerodromes in the United States, three New York metropolitan area airports – LaGuardia, John F. Kennedy International, and Newark Liberty International – are seeing some of the highest number of both delays cancellations while Chicago Midway Airport and three Florida airports, namely Orlando International, Miami International, and Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International, are among the top ten posting delays.
