Worst On-Time Arrival Performance
United Continental’s on-time performance continued to plummet to a new low of 64.1% in July — down from 70.1% in June. The largest U.S. carrier is still struggling to integrate the former Continental and has experienced monumental glitches with reservation systems. It didn’t help that UAL has a major hub at Chicago’s notoriously congested and delay-prone O’Hare International. Still, 3.6% of the carrier’s flights were delayed 70% of the time in July, compared to an industry rate of 1.2%.
