performance rate (Flickr: Simon_sees)On-time performance numbers for US airlines in the month of January were reported today by the Department of Transportation.

 

The news was good for US carriers; they finally were able to buck the trend of tardiness that had plagued them in recent months.

 

From December to January, on-time performance increased from 72 percent to 76.3 percent for 16 major US airlines.

 

While the month-over-month numbers showed improvement, on-time performance remained a few points lower than a year earlier.

 

Officials point to more crowded flights, a sign of the recovering industry, as a reason for many of the recent delays.

 

Hawaiian Airlines once again boasted the best on-time performance with a 91.2% rate, followed by Alaska Airlines at 85.3%, and United Air at 84.5%.
