FlightGlobal just released their 10th annual study of the most on-time airlines, and Delta Air Lines snagged the top spot for a second year in a row, with 86.09% of their flights on time (an improvement of 0.19% over 2017), beating out Qatar Airways (85.88%) and KLM (85.04%).
While I’ve been loyal to American Airlines (formerly US Airways) for the past 20 years, I have seriously been thinking of making the jump to Delta recently, and news like this makes it only more appealing. Heck, if their free Wi-Fi plans come to fruition, I’m switching for sure.
Not only that, but on a Delta flight last year, we had a one-hour delay for some reason. A gate agent brought out a cart with free sodas and snacks for everyone there. Let me tell you, that small gesture was greatly appreciated by everyone!
Here are the top 10 airlines for on-time arrivals in 2018, according to the report:
2. Qatar Airways
3. KLM Royal Dutch Airlines
8. United Airlines
9. American Airlines
Just something to consider the next time you’re booking a flight..
