STATEN ISLAND, NY — Many airline passengers have found a way to pass the time while waiting for a flight or when stuck in an airport for hours after a delay or cancellation.
In the first six months of 2022, about 2.8% of all scheduled flights in the United States were canceled and another 20.2% were delayed, according to flight tracking website FlightAware.
The Associated Press reported that more than 21,000 flights were canceled in June and 14,000 were canceled in July. And in early August, severe thunderstorms along the East Coast caused 1,500 flight cancellations and 3,700 delays.
This left airline passengers with plenty of time to watch pornography.
You read that right – according to CamSoda, an adult website that tracks user location data, people waiting for flights at airports watch porn to pass the time.
The “most exciting” airport of all? John F. Kennedy International Airport in Queens.
