NOTES: Data for flights showing zero taxi-out time were considered to be erroneous and were nont included in calculations for this table. Data for Comair for 2004 was not included due to taxi-out time errors for which an appropriate correction could not be determined. The number of departures shown are those for which taxi-out data is available. These numbers do not represent all scheduled airline departures in the year shown.
