No. 3 Seattle–Tacoma International Airport (SEA)

3 of 15

Flights Delayed: 10.64%

The Seattle-area airport has improved by about 2.5 points since last year, but with other airports making strides, too, its reward was to slip from first place into third. At its worst, however—and despite that reputation for rain—Sea-Tac never offers a delay rate much above 15 percent.

Best Time Window: Before 11 a.m.

Worst Time Window: 3–4 p.m.
