Xmas/New Year transport and travel trouble

There are usually more disasters and major foul-ups over this period, but this year has been unusually bad:

Glasgow bin lorry crash: Tributes to the victims

King's Cross reopens after day of travel chaos

AirAsia QZ8501: Indonesia plane 'at bottom of sea'

Italy ferry fire: Evacuation hampered by winds

Virgin Atlantic VS43 lands at Gatwick Airport after undercarriage failure

Any more I've missed?

As to why this happens, I do not know. Either more people are travelling on different routes; too many staff have bunked off on holiday; the weather is worse..? None of which explains the AirAsia thing, as down there the weather is the same all year round and people pretty much ignore Xmas.

probably just random chance turning up. Things like AirAsia can happen at any time.
