    After experiencing the second worst travel year on record, with over 25 percent of flights being delayed and countless numbers of flights being canceled in 2007, Grossman predicts that travelers can expect much of the same from airlines’ in 2008.

    Passengers in 2008 can not only expect to experience more time waiting for their flights in airport terminals, but will also face higher airfares in business class to rise. The reason he says, along with higher oil prices, airlines are going to begin cutting capacity between destinations.

    Passengers can also expect less reservation space and elbow room in flight while traveling with the airlines’ because of their plan to increase the amount of passengers in domestic flights and limiting the amount of per day flights they fly.
