When flights get cancelled because of heavy winds / bad weather, why is it only e.g. 10% of all flights and not 100%? Isn’t either too dangerous so no plane can take off or it’s safe so they all can take off ?

A lot of time those flights are cancelled because the planes can’t get IN to a city because of the wind/weather…but if the plane is already there, it very rarely gets cancelled for weather unless you do see that more than half are cancelled. It’s a lot easier to get a plane out of a city with bad weather than it is to bring one in.
