Best and Worst Airports for Delays 2010
No. 1 Chicago Midway Airport (MDW)
Flights Delayed: 26.2%
If you’re going to make a return to the 10 worst list, why not do it with panache? Chicago’s Midway, which disappeared from the Top 10 in 2009 and ranked a not-so-awful 10th in 2008, wins the dubious honor of being the most likely airport to make you sit. To be exact, you have a 26 percent chance of shaking your fist at the flight-status monitors.
Best Time Window: Before 8 a.m.
Worst Time Window: 7–11 p.m., reaching 100 percent (!) by 10 p.m.
