You've Got About A 1 In 3 Chance Of Arriving Late With American Airlines

For the third month in a row American Airlines is the worst airline when it comes to arriving on-time, says the Department of Transportation. Only 67.3% of American’s flights arrived within 14 minutes of scheduled arrival. Also remarkably tardy were United Airlines and Continental.

Sadly, 67.3% is actually an improvement for AA, the past two months saw on-time percentages of only 62% and 65.3%. Overall, the average number of flights that are on-time is 79%.

More bad news: American Airlines’ regional partner, American Eagle, canceled 2.8 percent of its flights in May, the worst in the industry.

Is there a fee that can fix this?
