Airplanes in U.S. start to show up on time

June 10, 2009


Stats released by the U.S. Department of Transportation say airplanes are taking off on time more frequently than before. More flights were on time in April than in March, as well as April 2008.

The Kansas City star singles out the airlines that are most often on time, as well as those that take schedules only as humorous suggestions:

Hawaiian Airlines had the best on-time performance, while Comair — a subsidiary of Delta Air Lines Inc. — had the worst. Among legacy carriers, Northwest Airlines — operated by Atlanta-based Delta — was on time the most, and Continental Airlines Inc. posted the worst on-time performance.

Punctuality may be something to keep in mind when deciding which airline to book for your summer vacation.
