America's Best and Worst Airports for Delays
Courtesy of Port of Portland
Best: No. 2 Portland International Airport (PDX)
Flights Delayed: 12.5%
For a city that prides itself on being mellow, this Oregon airport surprisingly cracks the whip—in a good way. For six years, PDX has held the No. 2 position, and it’s hard to complain when its on-time departure rate never dips below 79 percent. During the first hour of the day, PDX has one of the highest on-time percentages of all the major airports—a near-spotless 96 percent.
Best Time Window: Before 10 a.m.
Worst Time Window: 2–3 p.m.
