Does anyone know which flight (or route, even) claims the accolade 'the world's least punctual'?
Obviously this will change month by month, but lets say within the last three months.
I'm going to propose EK flight 20 MAN to DXB.

Well it would be hard to beat that DL flight .. To beat it we will have to find a flight that is basically never on time !!!

In the US, according to our Department of Transportation, the least punctual flight in the 3rd quarter of 2007 was Delta 1667, JFK-MCO, which missed being on time 94.12% of the time. The average delay for that flight (of flights that were delayed) was just over 95 minutes. During the quarter it was late 48 out of 51 departures. The DOT considers any flight arriving more than 15 minutes after its scheduled time to be late.
During that quarter there were 77 individual flights that were late more than 75% of the time. 28 of the 80 were operated by Atlantic Southeast Airlines, a commuter arm of Delta Airlines, and almost all those were into or out of ATL. Delta also had 12 of the top 80 flights, again because of operating out of ATL.
