Ever since that doctor was dragged kicking and screaming off that Chicago flight, a lot of have given a lot more thought to air travel. One thing that's up there on the pretty important scale is arriving on time, especially if you have a coonecting flight to catch!
There are any number of factors that can impact on-time performance on the occasional basis but some airports have developed a reputation based on a pattern. MileCards.com recently analyzed on-time arrival data from the U.S. Department of Transportation from the last ten years, looking at 50 of the busiest airports in the U.S.
That's called finding the pattern and they did and here's what they found. Three of the four worst airports for on-time summer arrivals are located in or around New York: Newark Liberty International was worst at being on time at 66.5 percent, LaGuardia was just four tenths of a percent better at 66.9 percent. Coming in at fourth place was J.F.K. International at 69.2 percent on time service.
San Francisco International and Boston's Logan International round out the top five worst airports for summer time on-time arrivals. Airports in Chicago, Philly and Miami also fared poorly.
On the flip side, a favorite always-summer-like destination had the most favorable summer travel on-time record. Kahului Airport and Honolulu International Airport ranked first and second for on-time arrivals at 88 percent and 86.5 percent. (Fox)
