The study determined both which of the country’s 50 busiest airports and airlines had the best and worst results for on-time arrivals.

But when the plane arrived in Stockton, the pilot could not reach anyone on the ground to get a weather report.

The Stockton Airport control tower is generally occupied from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. and operates on an automated system when the tower is unmanned.

Stockton Metropolitan deputy manager Helene Nusdbaumer confirmed to KCRA that the airport’s automated surface observation system, or ASOS visibility sensor, was down. But insisted that this kind of problem rarely occurs.

The pilot then flew the plane to LAX and the estimated 175 passengers were finally cleared to disembark around midnight.

But the nightmare was not yet over, so the passengers were taken to a waiting room with no bathroom.

The flight to Stockton was then rescheduled for the next day as disgruntled passengers were given $ 250 ticket vouchers and were left to sort out their situation on their own.

The passengers finally landed at Stockton Airport at 2 p.m. on Tuesday, 16 hours later than expected.

JetBlue had the second most delayed flight, with 23.2% of late arrivals
