(CNN) – Summer air travel is a mess, and flights are delayed and canceled with no sign of that.

US airlines have canceled more than 100,000 flights this year, with 30,000 canceled since Memorial Day weekend alone, according to data from flight tracking website FlightAware.

The increased disruption comes as the number of air travelers reaches a pandemic-era peak.

Canceled flights in the United States were highest at airports in the New York area, while three airports in Florida made the top 10.

So who is to blame for this messy summer travel season? Depends on who you ask.

Airlines with short-term payrolls say the federal government is also experiencing shortages at air traffic control facilities.

“From an industry perspective in the US, New York, Newark and Florida are really air traffic control challenges,” United Airlines CEO Scott Kirby told CNN’s Richard Quest.

But the Federal Aviation Administration blamed airline staffing problems as well as bad weather and heavy air traffic.

Transport Secretary Pete Buttigieg recently told CNN he is seeing improvements, but he still expects airlines to do better.

Buttigieg said: “Look, we’re looking to airlines to deliver to passengers and be able to service the tickets they sell.

Whatever the explanation for the chaos of summer air travel, it’s the passengers who get stuck in the middle.
