US Airlines Had Fewer Flights Departing On Time in March

On Monday the Department of Transportation released statistics that showed that airlines in the US had fewer on-time flights in the month of March than they did in the previous month.  On-time arrivals were 82.2% in March, while the figure in February was 86.2%.  One of the primary reasons for this dip in on-time arrivals is a hail storm in March that resulted in planes sitting on the tarmac for more than three hours.

Last year at this time, the average for on-time arrivals was only 79.2%, which shows a marked improvement.  Hawaiian Airlines had the most on-time arrivals, with AirTran coming in second and US Airways third.  At the other end of the list, with the worst on-time arrivals, were United Airlines, Virgin America, and ExpressJet.  The criteria for an on-time flight is a flight that arrives within 15 minutes of its scheduled arrival time.
