Airline on-time performance
Are you flying some where this summer. Airlines improved their on-time performance for the month of May, compared to the same month last year.
That's according to the U.S. Department of Transportation's Air Travel Consumer Report. The nation's largest airlines posted an on-time arrival rate of 83.4 percent in May. Better than the 77.1 percent rate from May, 2011.
But on-time performance was worse than April's rate of 86.3 percent. Airlines also reported one tarmac delay of more than three hours on a domestic flight, and one tarmac delay of more than four hours on an international flight in May.
