Come Fly The Crowded Skies
According to a report in the Wall Street Journal between January and May of this year, about 74% of US flights arrived on time, the lowest percentage since the Bureau of Transportation Statistics started keeping records of this kind in 1995. The number of delays and cancellations in June may have been the worst ever. According to FlightStats.com, 20,301 flights were cancelled in the U.S., more then double the number grounded in June 2006. Among the 40 largest U.S. airlines, more than 30% of flights scheduled to land in the U.S arrived late.
