Delta was 2022’s most on-time airline, new study shows

Alaska Airlines was No. 2 with 81% of on-time arrivals

From The Points Guy:

[Delta Airlines] The Atlanta-based carrier is poised to finish 2022 with an on-time arrival percentage of over 84%, according to new data released Thursday from Cirium, an aviation analytics company.

Of Delta’s 959,987 flights from Jan. 1 through Dec. 15, 84.1% of them arrived on time, according to the new data. This is the second year in a row that Delta took the top spot as the most punctual carrier in Cirium’s analysis.

An on-time arrival includes any flight that lands at its destination and arrives at the gate within 15 minutes of the originally scheduled arrival time, a standard industry metric often referred to as “A15.”

Cirium’s data set considers all flights completed in 2022, through Dec. 15. Of the over 5 million total flights in North America this year, 71.91% arrived on time.

Note that these metrics only account for mainline operations, not those operated by regional affiliates, such as SkyWest or Republic.
