US Airline Schedule Performance
Care to share?

You may buy an airline ticket based on price, but you are obviously influenced by schedule.  The fare has to be really special to make you turn a travel day upside down.  Looking at the US airlines, what does their schedule performance look like?  Using the data through year-end 2022, here’s our model.

There are ten pages to go through.

  • Summary: Select an airline to see its performance from January 2016.  The upper chart lists the number of flights, and the lower chart lists the average stage lengths flown and average air time for these flights.
  • Page 1:  Select an airline and year to see its arrival time delay by block hour of the day.  The larger table lists the airline’s top 20 destinations, and the colors indicate the arrival time. Green is good, and red is not so good.
  • Page 1.1: Like Page 1, except you can select the destination to see how that performs.
  • Page 2: Like Page 1, except now looking at departure delays.
  • Page 2.2: Like Page 1.1, looking at departure delays.
  • Hubs: Select airline, aircraft, and year and evaluate performance at the top 30 destinations
  • Fleet: Airline schedule performance by aircraft type.
  • Page 3: Top 30 busiest aircraft for each airline, by year, OEM, and tail number.
  • Page 4: Select a hub and airline, and see average taxi times and taxi time as a percentage of air time.
  • Page 5:  Fleet average speeds by an airline by aircraft
