In the on-time rankings, Hawaiian Airlines is the top finisher, with 93.9% of its flights arriving on time. It also flies out of the fewest airports of the major U.S. carriers. Delta Air Lines took the silver medal, and Alaska Airlines came in at #3.
Most people who have complaints about an airline complain directly to that airline, and don’t take their problems to the Department of Transportation. While we don’t know how many people complained to their airlines, we do know that the total fewer than 1,000 people filed complaints with the federal government, which is higher than the same month last year.
Unsurprisingly, Spirit Airlines had the most. Spirit also happened to have the second-lowest on-time rate, 75.3%, coming in ahead of Frontier Airlines with 74% of their flights on time.
Another statistic that’s part of this report is the number of pets that were lost, injured, or killed during a domestic flight. No animals were lost during November 2015, but according to the reports two animals had injuries, and four died.
