How punctual is your airline? Wolfram Alpha will tell you

March 3, 2011

Ever wondered how many flights were cancelled or delayed by your favorite or not-so-favorite airline? What are the causes of those delays? Wolfram Alpha will determine these statistics for various airlines in U.S. Currently, only U.S.-based airlines are supported.

All you have to do is type in the name of the airline in the search box (example: Southwest airlines) of Wolfram Alpha and hit enter. The chart gives you all the information you need to know.

Tip: Upon submitting your airline search, if you don’t see the statistical information that we have shown above, then make sure to click the “an airline” link (shown below). By default, Wolfram Alpha will show the airline as a financial entity.
