NOTE: Major airports are those designated by the Office of Airline Information as having at least 1% of enplanments in the 48 continguous states. Carriers reporting on-time data may change each year due to changes in carriers that are required to report and in carriers that report voluntarily. In 2007 the carriers were, Airtran, Alaska, Aloha, American, American Eagle, Atlantic Southeast, Comair, Continental, Delta, ExpressJet, Frontier, Hawaiian, JetBlue, Mesa, Northwest, Pinnacle, Skywest, Southwest, United, and US Airways (including America West). The percentage of on-time arrivals is based on the number of scheduled operations. Flights that are cancelled, diverted or arrive at the gate more than 15 minutes after the scheduled arrival are excluded from on-time arrivals.
