Delta’s on-time performance was the best of all the major carriers at 83.7 percent. This is an accomplishment for the airline, which landed at the bottom of the list for years.
In total, U.S. airlines arrived on-time approximately three-fourths, or 76 percent, of the time.
This is step back for the industry, which reached an on-time record of 78.3 percent in 2013. This is the second year in a row that on-time performance has decreased year-over-year.
The only airline from around the world that bests Hawaiian on punctuality is airBaltic, with an average on-time performance of 94.9 percent compared to Hawaiian’s on-time performance of 92.3 percent, according to aviation data service OAG.
The OAG report calculates Hawaiian’s on-time percentage slightly higher than that of the Bureau of Transportation Statistics, which reports it as 91.9 percent for 2014.
