NOTES: Major airports are those designated by the Office of Airline Information as having at least 1% of enplanements in the 48 contiguous 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 2010 , the reporting carriers were AirTran, Alaska, American, American Eagle, Atlantic Southeast, Continental, Delta, ExpressJet, Frontier, Hawaiian, JetBlue, Mesa, SkyWest, Southwest, United, and US Airways. The percentage of on-time arrivals is based on the number of scheduled operations. Flights that are cancelled, diverted or arrived at the gate more than 15 minutes after the scheduled arrival are excluded from on-time arrivals.
