The U.S. Department of Transportation released its On-Time Performance stats for the month of July today with the following top 10 results.
1. Westjet 92.0%
2. Skywest 91.6%
3. JetBlue 88.5%
4. Southwest 84.0%
5. Northwest 82.7%
6. America West 82.0%
7. Alaska 81.2%
8. United 80.7%
9. Continental 80.4%
10. Delta 79.3
Average for all carriers: 79.7%
While Westjet is not included in the U.S. Department of Transportation statistics, I thought I would include it with July's U.S. results. What is even more interesting is that Westjet has topped all U.S. carriers for three months in a row (May, June, July)!!
For your information, OTP is based on A15.
In the U.S., reporting OTP is a federal regulation but in Canada it is not. Westjet is very proud of its accomplishments in the past months, and they now include a link to their OTP stats on their website under 'About Us'.
On a side note, here are the statistics for cancellations for the month of July:
1. JetBlue 0%
