No. 1 Newark Liberty International Airport (EWR)
Flights Delayed: 23.83%
Apparently, the New Jersey airport missed the memo that this was a year to improve on-time departures. Unlike most other U.S. airports, it fell by three percentage points in performance and skidded down to No. 1 worst airport (from its No. 7 tie last year). By 7 p.m., your chance of a delay here reaches the 40 percent mark. Your best chance is to fly out before 7 a.m.
Best Time Window: Before 7 a.m.
Worst Time Window: 1–11 p.m.
