Best On-Time Performance

Hawaiian185 The Best and Worst U.S. Airlines in November 1. Hawaiian Airlines (NASDAQ:HA) — 94.1%

What more can you say about Hawaiian Airlines’ consistently sunny on-time performance? The airline bested its peers again in November, and remains the odds-on favorite to hold onto the coveted first-place ranking it has owned since 2004.

Runners up:

2. AirTran, a unit of Southwest (NYSE:LUV) — 91.3%. AirTran continues to gain ground in on-time performance — a benefit of being a part of the Southwest family. It’s worth noting, however, that Southwest’s on-time performance has slipped since the merger.

3. Delta Air Lines — 90.6%. Delta deserves credit for making improved on-time performance a priority by beefing up maintenance personnel at airports and timing flights more effectively.

How other major airlines stack up:

U.S. Airways (NYSE:LCC) — 88.1%

Alaska Airlines (NYSE:ALK) — 87.3%

American Eagle, a unit of American Airlines — 86.6%
