Does this include regional "express" carriers with the majors, or are those separate?

The biggest surprise on the summary, to me, is Denver being as high as it is. Given the weather it can get (severe storms in the summer, plenty of snow in the winter), I would have pegged it a bit lower.

How about ORD being as high as it is!? I know things have improved since the runway realignment, but I wouldn't have expected to see ORD on any "best" list for on time performance...
This is my signature until I think of a better one.

Well lets keep in mind, ORD sits in the global Mega airports category which OAG defines as 60mil+ passengers, and there are not that many airports to compare with in the category.

If one goes down the list and looks at Major (40-60mil) or large airports (20-40mil in traffic), the ORD 79.85 percent does not look at great at all.

For example, every single one of the 20 large airports listed by OAG table had better OT performance than ORD if we broaden the pool of airports.

I love how punctual airports are. Everytime I go to one, it's right there waiting for me.

What's going on at WN? They used to be top of this list every year. Why has their on time performance sunk so much?

Troll ORD all you want, but where are PVG, DXB? Guess DTW isn’t the mega hub than fan boys claim it is!

DTW may not be the mega hub, but its on-time performance is quite a bit better than ORD@83.3%. For similar size airport MSP took top place at 85.72%. DL fanboy will certainly be happy (to be fair, DL is 2nd place after HA for on-time performance also) :stirthepot:

The only airline on the list that surprise me is HX anyway. Although I believe they simply pad in more time per flight just to show that they are punctual. Of course, not surprisingly, HKG is way down on the list at 67.92%.

Is it that hard to search on Wikipedia or Google? :banghead:

It is just the largest airlines by capacity and fleet size in India, definitely a nobody :white:

Their OTP is definitely high, though, considered that the Indian domestic routes OTP, which hovered around 60%, is only better than the infamous Chinese domestic routes, with OTP of 50%. :rotfl:

They've gone into and grown into larger and more congested airports...LGA, SFO, BOS, EWR, LAX, DCA, CLT, ATL.

They introduced the -800 which has introduced some complexities of operating different sized aircraft.

Lastly, they tried increasing utilization at the same time and their whole operation started to have a ripple effect and cause delays across the network.

Can anyone clarify their definition of “largest global airline”? It seems bizarre on face value that Alaska is a ‘large global airline’ while Qantas falls into the ‘everyone else’ category.

It's answered in the second line of LAXintl's post: based on number of departures. Qantas has relatively large gauge and long stage length helping Revenue Passenger Miles (or km) but departure count may not be high.

Thank you for posting tables.

From European angle interesting to see the jump in performance of Vueling, becoming the best LCC in the world after so many struggles in 2015-2016 with its operation.

I also combined tables for airports regardless of size to show top-10 best airports in Europe for the period.

1. Tenerife North 90.05 percent
2. Birmingham 89.52
3. Hannover 89.34
4. Stavanger 86.67
5. Cologne 86.66
6. Brussels Charleroi 86.51
7. Liverpool 85.93
8. Bergen 85.55
9. Gdansk 85.13
10. Trondheim 84.66

And here is similar combined list for Asia/Pacific
1. Osaka ITM 88.45
2. Tokyo HND 86.75
3. Kaohsiung 84.74
4. Sapporo 84.73
5. Perth 84.20
6. Brisbane 83.71
7. Adelaide 83.57
8. Nagoya 83.22
9. Tokyo NRT 81.83
10. Singapore 80.57

I'm not sure how many categories the report had, but this shows combining categories basically results in a list of only the category small/medium airports, as to be expected because running a large airport is much more complex.

FWIW, MAD is a Top-25 airport globally in terms of passenger numbers, while DTW doesn't crack the top 50.

Well not in the case of Asia-Pacific airports. Some of the top ones in combined list are also some of the busiest in the world as well.

Pulling off good ontime performance should be size dependent.

And for reference, the airport categories were 60mil+, 40-60m, 20-40m,10-20mil and 5-10mil.

I am shocked that United beat out American, especially with their exposure to delay-prone, congested airports.

ORD: AA and UA are both big here, but UA is much more reliant on ORD as its largest hub. -1 UA

EWR: Enough said. EWR is UA's third largest hub, and it is basically the most delay-prone airport in the US. Tie because of LGA JFK

JFK/LGA: Also as delay-prone as EWR, but AA is significantly smaller here than UA at EWR. Tie because of EWR

SFO VS LAX: SFO is worse, and UA is dominant there. However, united at LAX may be better than AA at LAX. -1 UA

MIA: middle-of-the-road. +1 AA

PHX: very few delays +1 AA

DEN: again, few delays, but worse than Phoenix. -1 UA

DCA vs IAD: DCA is worse, so AA loses points here. -1 AA

CLT: not bad at all. +1 AA

IAH VS DFW: IAH is worse, so United loses points here. -1 UA

MAD is 50% busier than DTW in terms of annual passenger traffic (50M pax vs 34M pax).

Except IAH has 82.43% OTP while DFW has 81.36% OTP. So how is IAH worse?

As for the other:
CLT is at 81.79%, PHX is at 83.22%, MIA is at 79.38%, while DEN is at 82.24%, and IAD is at 81.79%. Essentially, PHX vs. DEN is a wash, so is CLT vs. IAD. MIA is certainly not all that great, though.

At the end, you're talking about a difference of 0.89% (79.86% vs. 78.97%) between UA and AA, it's an essential tie anyway.

Maybe AA should pad more time in their schedule. Just like how zakuivcustom noted HX has high punctual percentage despite operating at a delay-prone airport.

I didn't realize that DFW is worse than IAH, actually. I remember seeing a statistic there sometime.

United for the last half year has had really strong performance even beating DL few months. AA has been the laggard among US3.

People can say what they will about UA, but its operational performance improvemen has been impressive.

Block costs money and with the tightness of some of AA's banks, adding block can break the connections. I'd rather see flights have minimal padding because it helps cut down on early arrivals sitting and holding for gates.

"Large Airport" is actually 10-20m. SLC is 2nd in that category, behind ITM (Osaka, Japan). But hey, it's hard to beat the Japanese when it comes to punctuality.

1. ITM (Osaka/Itami) 88.45%
2. SLC (Salt Lake City) 86.01%
3. CTS (Sapporo/Chitose) 84.73%
4. BSB (Brasilia) 84.58%
5. GIG (Rio de Janeiro/Galeao) 84.25%
6. BNE (Brisbane) 83.71%
7. ATH (Athens) 82.87%
8. SAW (Istanbul/Sabiha Gokcen) 82.32%
8. CGH (Sao Paulo/Congonhas) 82.32%
10. CPH (Copenhagen) 82.25%

(I'll omit 11-20...just download the report)

Meanwhile, for 20-30m:
1. MSP (Minneapolis-St. Paul) 85.72%
2. DOH (Doha) 85.41%
3. SVO (Moscow/Sheremetyevo) 83.55%
4. DTW (Detroit) 83.30%
5. PHX (Phoenix) 83.22%
6. IAH (Houston/Intercontinental) 82.43%
7. NRT (Tokyo/Narita) 81.83%
8. CLT (Charlotte) 81.79%
9. MEX (Mexico City) 80.87%
10. SEA (Seattle/Tacoma) 80.35%

Yes, it is nice to hear that UA is upping their game. I mostljust fly UA, and their performance, service, and overall quality has improved in recent years and months. I think with their excellent hub network, strong international destinations, and relationship in the Star Alliance, they can be the best of the legacy airlines. Air Canada is a really useful partnership for people who travel extensively within North America to smaller destinations, as I do. Lufthansa is also great, and they offer excellent connecting opportunities through MUC and FRA throughout Europe. The only thing with UA is the lack of a Southeast hub. We often find ourselves needing to take DL through ATL or AA through CLT to reach small Southern markets effectively, coming from EWR.

SLC has 24m pax/year. It should be #1 in the 20-30m list. Is it by emplanements only or both arrivals and departures?

Also surprised to see Mexico City and Moscow Sheremetyevo so high up.

SLC is in the right list - 10-20mil enplanements / 20-40mil total annual pax.
Number one in that category is Osaka Itami at 88.45% which will have ~29mil pax according to online sources in 2017.

Could someone post the entire table for large airports (20-30m)? I want to see where SLC stands considering that it is usually at the top of these lists.


"Large Airport" is actually 10-20m. SLC is 2nd in that category, behind ITM (Osaka, Japan). But hey, it's hard to beat the Japanese when it comes to punctuality.

1. ITM (Osaka/Itami) 88.45%
2. SLC (Salt Lake City) 86.01%
3. CTS (Sapporo/Chitose) 84.73%
4. BSB (Brasilia) 84.58%
5. GIG (Rio de Janeiro/Galeao) 84.25%
6. BNE (Brisbane) 83.71%
7. ATH (Athens) 82.87%
8. SAW (Istanbul/Sabiha Gokcen) 82.32%
8. CGH (Sao Paulo/Congonhas) 82.32%
10. CPH (Copenhagen) 82.25%

(I'll omit 11-20...just download the report)

Meanwhile, for 20-30m:
1. MSP (Minneapolis-St. Paul) 85.72%
2. DOH (Doha) 85.41%
3. SVO (Moscow/Sheremetyevo) 83.55%
4. DTW (Detroit) 83.30%
5. PHX (Phoenix) 83.22%
6. IAH (Houston/Intercontinental) 82.43%
7. NRT (Tokyo/Narita) 81.83%
8. CLT (Charlotte) 81.79%
9. MEX (Mexico City) 80.87%
10. SEA (Seattle/Tacoma) 80.35%


SLC has 24m pax/year. It should be #1 in the 20-30m list. Is it by emplanements only or both arrivals and departures?

Also surprised to see Mexico City and Moscow Sheremetyevo so high up.

SLC is in the right list - 10-20mil enplanements / 20-40mil total annual pax.
Number one in that category is Osaka Itami at 88.45% which will have ~29mil pax according to online sources in 2017.


I went back and look at the report. It's "by departing seats", so the 10-20m number makes sense (24m/2~=12m).
