New stats released by the Bureau of Transportation show BWI Thurgood Marshall was the second-best airport for flight on-time arrival performance in May, second only to Salt Lake City. Nearly 87 percent of planes arriving at BWI were on schedule. On-time departures were not quite as high, about 86 percent, but still good enough to rank the airport in the Top 5.
Overall, airlines did a better job staying on time in May, according to an AP report. Hawaiian Airlines had the best on-time performance, fighting all that air traffic high above the Pacific and flying to just 14 destinations, but we'll give them their props. AirTran did pretty good, too. American Airlines had the worst performance, with just 67 percent of its fleet arriving on-time.
