The data was collected by Mumbai International Airport Pvt Ltd (MIAL) and it shows that Kingfisher came out on top with only 33 delayed arrivals, as compared with 51 late arrivals by Air India and 62 late arrivals by Jet Airways.  In terms of departures, once again Kingfisher came out on top with only 23 late departures.  Jet Airways had a total of 41 late departures and Air India had 47.  Airport officials said that the number of delays is proportional to the number of flights the carrier offers so the larger carriers have more.
