United The Best and Worst U.S. Airlines in July1. United Continental — 64.1%

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%.

Runners Up:
2. ExpressJet Airlines, regional subsidiary of SkyWest (NASDAQ:SKYW) — 67.7%
3. AMR’s American Eagle — 75.4%

How Other Major Airlines Stack Up:
JetBlue (NASDAQ:JBLU) — 75.5%
American Airlines — 76.4%
