Reminds me of the quote,
"Statistics are like a bikini. What they reveal is suggestive, but what they conceal is vital."

My daughter is in college in NYC. When she flies back and forth to/from Denver, the scheduled flight time is listed as about 5 hours. When the flight leaves on time, it miraculously arrives about an hour early.

What the airlines have done to make their on-time performance appear better than it really is, is lengthen the flight time. If the flight leaves 45 minutes late, it still has an on-time arrival for the stats.

Well, no, over the entire period of data, covering major airports it's 81% vs 79%.

And of course, Southwest is the #1 on-time US airline, again: America's Most On-Time Airlines - Forbes.com

And they do so using products designed and built by American workers. What's not to LUV?

Disclosure: I own stock, and have for a long time.

I'm really just teasing here; carry on.

As I suspected (having grown up in Wisconsin) a BADGER is the newest mascot. The Business Journal of Milwaukee: Name that badger, but don't pick Bucky

(Only one person liked my cookie monster photo? )

Another Frontier plus: being able to walk to the A concourse from the terminal.

It was really a plus when no one seemed to know about it. The security lines were maybe 5 minutes long. Those days are gone. The last two times I was there the security line was out into the main terminal. I waited 25 min. They were doing construction in that area, hopefully to open more security lines. I will find out firsthand next week.

I like Frontier because they upgraded me to a window seat with tons of leg room (I'm 6'6").

Frontier Airlines is defiantly my fav. I flew with them for the first time in 2007 from PDX to ATL. It was my first time flying so I was pretty nervous. It was pretty smooth process. I like that they had tv and movies kept my mind distracted. We had to fly a bit lower because they were having problems with the cabin pressurization computer, I just wish the captain did not announce that. lol! On the way back there was a delay leaving ATL and they re-booked my DEN to PDX leg since I would not be able to make my layover because of the delay. Which I did not mind to much since after I finally go to DEN it was a 15 min wait then boarded for PDX. PLUS it was really cool that they gave me a exit row seat with plenty of legroom and landing in PDX at night was so cool seeing all the lights of the city.
