With the holiday season around the corner, if you’re like most, you’re probably flying somewhere to be with your family, and arriving on-time is an important aspect of you getting there.
Per CN Traveler using the Bureau of Transportation stats here the 5 best on-time airlines between Thanksgiving and New Year’s Day:
1. Hawaiian Airlines, 90.4 percent (on-time percentage)
2. Delta Air Lines, 86.88 percent
3. Alaska Airlines, 83.3 percent
4. American Airlines, 79.8
5. United Airlines, 79.5
And if you’re wondering what’s last on the list, it’s Frontier Airlines. While those $29 fares may seem appealing, don’t expect to arrive on-time if you decide to fly them around the holidays.
Now granted, when it comes to on-time flights, I feel weather plays into this, and I can’t help but feel somewhat bad for Frontier, considering their main hub is in Denver, which is prone to snow, meaning delays and cancellations. It’s no surprise that Hawaiian Airlines comes in on the top of this list either.
Which airline will you be flying this holiday season? Feel free to share your feedback below!
