Let’s not fool ourselves. Nobody likes to wait, much less in an airport , where comforts are often conspicuous by their absence. That is why we like our flights to leave at the scheduled time and arrive at the time indicated on the boarding passes.
FlightStats , aware of the anger that delays can cause, has compiled a list of the 10 most punctual airlines in the world . For the investigation, they have taken into account those that operate on at least three continents and are regular companies (no charter flights) with more than 30,000 flights a year.
