As we're reporting tonight on NewsChannel 8 at 5 and 6, it has been the summer of cancelled flights. Airlines have cancelled more flights so far this July than ever before. Between July 1 and July 15, 2006, airlines in the US cancelled 3,618 flights. During the same period this July, they've cancelled 6,960 flights - almost a 100% increase.

In our story, and in the main story here on KGW.com, we talked about the problems Northwest Airlines has had with cancellations this summer. But they're not alone. The following links take you to the full, exclusive report, produced for KGW by Portland-based FlightStats.com. You can see where your airline ranks, and find out how likely it is your flight will be cancelled.
