Which are the 10 worst U.S. airports for holiday travel? Brace yourself if you, family or friends are trying to get somewhere for Christmas out of these 10.

Finance technology company SmartAsset has ranked airports across the country by analyzing data gathered from over 4,000 domestic flights scheduled for December from 2012 to 2015, The Daily Meal reported.

Based on information such as cancellation rate, delay rate, and the average time of those delays, the company was able to produce this final list by running data from its analysis through a few calculations.

1. San Francisco International Airport – Topping the list is San Francisco, which sees a 3.26 percent flight cancellation and a 49.5 percent delay. According to The Daily Meal, the airport’s average delay time is 41.2 minutes.

2. Newark Liberty International Airport – New Jersey’s main airport has a bad reputation, with SmartAsset noting that 51 percent of the flights were delayed over the past four Decembers, and 2.75 percent of flights canceled.

3. Bill and Hillary Clinton National Airport – The Arkansas hub features a delay rate of 49.5 percent and a flight cancellation rate of 4.69 percent, The Daily Meal noted.

4. Chicago O’Hare International Airport – SmartAsset reported that 3.4 percent of all domestic flights out of O’Hare international were canceled in the last four Decembers.

5. Palm Springs International Airport – Delays are imminent at the Californian airport, with up to 36.4 percent of its flights experiencing delays averaging 45.9 minutes, The Daily Meal said. The airport also saw a 2.85 percent flight cancellation rate.

6. Will Rogers World Airport – If you are flying out of Oklahoma via this airport be prepared for flight cancellations. SmartAsset reported about 2.8% of flights were cancelled over the past four Decembers.

7. Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport – Flight cancellations are also a prominent issue at this airport, with a 3.03 percent cancelation rate reported, while delays made up about 31.6 percent of flights, Smart Asset noted.

8. General Mitchell International Airport – SmartAsset reported that around one out of every 40 flights were cancelled in the last four Decembers. Weather could be a possible contributing factor in this high number, as well as in the lengthy delays, which average at around 37 minutes.

9. LaGuardia Airport – This New York City airport is not even considered to be the busiest hub, The Daily Meal said, and yet it has become a nightmare for holiday travelers, with a 2.60 percent flight cancellation and delays occurring at a rate of 37.9 percent.

10. Dallas/Forth Worth International Airport – While this airport fared well in most other categories, flight cancellations are its biggest downfall. Of the 78 airports analyzed by SmartAsset, DFW had the highest flight cancellation rate of 4.9 percent.
