Laurel told me her flight to Shanghai from the regional airport of Yichang was delayed 20 hours. I must admit I don't fly very frequently (thank God), but none of my flights in recent years were on-time, and this is countrywide not only in Beijing and Shanghai. Best delay was 3 hours and worst was 12 hours. This is much worse than say 5 years ago. It is a serious detriment to businesses and I believe it serves as a big drag to the economy. The key reasons as cited in the article are poor air traffic control and the occupation of the air space by the military.

I have heard that it is impossible to check your bags through from one country in China to the other and this adds to the number of delays which I have also heard comes from the restricted air space with the rest allocated to flexions.
