The four major airlines that fly out of Bob Hope Airport fared well for on-time departures compared to two other airports in the L.A. area, according to the latest information by a flight-tracking firm.
SkyWest, which operates under contract with other major airlines in Burbank, was the tardiest carrier at the airfield, reporting a higher-than-average number of excessively late departures, which means they were delayed by 44 minutes or more.
Southwest Airlines came in first during the last three months compared to Los Angeles International Airport and John Wayne Airport in Santa Ana, according to Portland, Ore.-based FlightStats, which compiles information provided by airlines across the country and internationally, as well as from other sources such as the
Federal Aviation Administration.
Last month, 92.4% of Southwest's flights took off on time, while the percentage of on-time departures for Southwest was about 83.5% at John Wayne and 81.5% at LAX.
Southwest provides more flights at Bob Hope Airport than any other airline.
