Sorry Chicago: O'Hare Airport Is Worst In The Nation, Midway Not Far Behind

If you flew out of O’Hare in December — we are so sorry. Only 55 percent of O’Hare flights departed on time. If you thought you were smart and chose to fly out of Midway instead — you were, but it was the second worst airport in the US, so don’t get too excited.

From the Chicago Tribune:

Just 55 percent of O’Hare flights departed on time during December, which was the fifth-worst month for air travel in the 14 years that federal officials have tracked airline punctuality, according to data released Monday by the Bureau of Transportation Statistics.

Midway came in at 58%. Ouch, ouch, ouch.
