The 10 flight routes UK passengers are most likely to find themselves delayed on have been revealed by Which?

The consumer champion, using 2018 data from the Civil Aviation Authority, found that the worst offender is Thomas Cook's service between London Stansted and Dalaman in Turkey. It is more delayed than any other service departing from or arriving at a UK airport.

Ryanair is tardier overall though - it operates seven of the 10 most frequently late services.

The analysis found that on Thomas Cook's worst ranked route, passengers were delayed by more than an hour on a quarter of journeys.

The second most delayed operation was Ryanair's service between Liverpool John Lennon Airport and Italy's Milan Malpensa Airport, where passengers saw one in five (22.4 per cent) flights delayed by an hour or more.

Thomas Cook's operation between Stansted and Antalya was little better, coming in as the third most delayed and affecting one in five (22.2 per cent) flights.

One in five (21.9 per cent, 4th) Ryanair flights between Stansted and Nice in the South of France were delayed by an hour or more, along with its services between Stansted and Leipzig in Germany (21.1 per cent, 5th), Luxembourg (20.2 per cent, 6th), Billund in Denmark (19.4 per cent, 7th), and Bari in southern Italy (19 per cent, 8th).

One in four (20.4 per cent, 9th) of its flights between Bristol and Bergamo were also substantially delayed.

EasyJet - Services - Cent - Flights - Ibiza

EasyJet completed the top 10 most delayed services of 2018, with one in five (18.6 per cent) of its flights from Stansted to Ibiza late by an hour or more.

Stansted was the UK's worst performing airport for delays in 2018, with more than 10 per cent of its flights departing an hour late, and an average delay of nearly half an hour.
