American Airlines ranks among the worst in industry in on-time performance, cancellations
FORT WORTH — According to this report in the Dallas Business Journal, it appears American Airlines ranks at
or near the bottom in two very important categories: on-time flights and cancellations.
According to the latest Air Travel Consumer Report, American ranked 18th out of 20 U.S. airlines in on-time performance in July,
with just 63.4% of flights departing when they were supposed to. While that's a huge improvement over the previous months' 57.9%,
it still lags behind the national average of around 70%.
Also, American came in 30th out of 32 airlines in terms of cancelling flights, with 2% of all July flights not even getting off the ground.
(After the experiences our clients have had recently with U.S. Air, we were shocked they weren't rated as the worst.)
