In Europe, particularly during peak periods, there’s a chance of up to 50 per cent that your flight will be delayed. Unless you’re reading a particularly good book, boredom and frustration are guaranteed. But French broadcaster Canal + and its agency Havas saw an opportunity. They created an app called Winning Delays, based on the data provided by airports. Users simply typed their flight number into the app, and it came up with a list of TV shows and movies that corresponded to the length of their delay. Half an hour? Time for a sitcom. Two hours? Congrats: you get a whole movie! And all totally free. The service was promoted via digital posters in the airport, where people could scan a QR code and download the app. Turning late into great, thanks to top quality content.
