One of the determining factors that often gets overlooked is what kind of aircraft is operating your flight.
Are you flying on an Airbus 320? Then you’ve got a better chance of being on time.
The A320 has the top arrival time—76.5 percent of the time.
But if you’re on a 757, the on-time arrival percentage drops to 70 percent.
What about a Boeing 767? That drops all the way down to 65.3 percent of the time.
What’s the worst performing aircraft for on-time arrival? The recent 747, at just 63.1 percent of the time.
So now you know.
