The DOT has just released the rankings for June and ATA jumped 9 spots from 13th place to tied for 2nd with Southwest and America West. I'd like to congradulate all my fellow employees on a job well done and let's keep it up and show everybody that we mean business!!!

Although we probably will see a drop in July because of the weather problems we have been experiencing, this is an acknowledgment that we definatly belong in 'The Big League'.
We're no longer 'The Little Engine that Could', but 'The Big Engine That Can'!!

We recieved these results system-wide I believe a week ago. I included Westjet (the airline I work for) in these totals as, well, we were technically first! The DOT does not include Canadian airlines. I tried to find the statistics in whole on the DOT website, but I couldn't find it. Realistically, ATA is fourth in the States, fifth in North America. The following is what I recieved in an email.
The On-Time-Performance statistics were released today by the U.S. Department of Transportation for North America, with the following top 10 results:

Thanks to OH-LGA for providing the link.
So, after just a little digging, among US-flagged carriers TZ is actually fourth best in on-time performance and not "tied for second" as originally claimed. And I thought this was the "honest" airline.
And it looks like June was a good month for ATA, but 2Q03 wasn't as good, as TZ finished 11th for the April-June period.
Congratulations to WestJet for beating all US carriers -- I would dearly like to fly them sometime. (They are modeled after Southwest Airlines.)

"Knock what off -- speaking the truth?'
It must be a miserable life you lead. Having to point out what you perceive as the shortcomings of others in order to feel good about yourself. Always looking over your shoulder, hoping to catch them in another "misstep" so that you can run shouting at the top of your lungs..."OOOH, OOOH, OOOH; LOOK WHAT THEY DID, NOW".
If you want to tout the good about your favorite airline, go ahead. CONSTANTLY pointing out what your think are failings of another company is just unseemly and pathetic. IMO.

WNfan...get a life and stop whining about ATA all the time !!! That's great you live your life for Southwest, they are a great airline, no one here doubts that.
But for gods sake stop making a fool of yourself by acting like an immature child when it comes to ATA !
Your probably embarrassing Southwest employees by your stupid posts !!!
I encourage everyone to go back and look at some of the ridiculous posts WNfan has put on here. Things like WNfan not being able to use ATA's booking engine , crying about ATA's ad campaigns and so on.
If I worked for Southwest I woudnt want to be associated with you in the least bit.

Yeah mother nature wasn't to friendly in the month of June. I know C8 had around 163 cancellations in July compared to 3 in June. But oh well weather is something to play with when you have a hub in the Midwest. Hopefully when the new planes come on scene for C8 some of the bigger stations could see an IND flight.
Baggage is something that needs major work, especially in the transfering at MDW. They have their ups and downs but the biggest problem i see is passengers checking in at MDW an hour before and it fails to make a flight to an out station. I also would think it would be nice if we turned our old maintainence hanger into a passenger lounge and have the busses running constantly...may clear up some of the bussing delays.
