Recent analysis from flight data specialist EUclaim have shown that Flight cancellations soared by 20 percent in the first quarter of 2015. In the first quarter of 2014 there were 4, decease 239 cancellations and 5,080 in the first four months of 2015 in the UK alone. This is no surprise when you take in to account the huge rise in air traffic and the unpredictable weather conditions, but it doesn’t make it any less frustrating. None of us enjoy being inconvenienced when ready to depart for our annual holiday, business travel or jetting off to see overseas family even if the situation is out of anyone’s control. It’s not only flight cancellations that can burden our everyday air travel lives, delays can cause us all a huge inconvenience. Did you know that nearly a quarter of all flights are delayed? The average compensation from airlines is a £5 airport voucher and an uncomfortable bench. Not really the ideal start to the holiday that we have worked hard to pay for, dreamed of and counted down the days to.
So where does Sleepbox fit in to the equation? After years of experiencing cancelled flights and delays and the occasional overnight stay using our bags as a pillow we decided that enough was enough. We developed a luxurious and affordable solution to help ease the stress of the inevitable delays and cancellations that has quite frankly taken the joy out of air travel.
