U.S. airlines' canceled domestic flights and mishandled baggage reports were the lowest they've been in decades in 2016, according to the Department of Transportation's Air Travel Consumer Report.


Reporting carriers canceled 1.17% of domestic flights in 2016, the lowest rate in 22 years, and mishandled baggage hit an all-time recorded low of 2.7 reports per 1,000 passengers. In 2015, the cancellation rate was 1.5%, and the mishandled baggage rate was 3.13 per 1,000 passengers.

Airlines' rate of bumping passengers off flights, which the DOT has tracked since 1995, also hit a record low of 0.62 per 10,000 passengers in 2016.
