Most airports are doing better at on-time departures this year. But they may not be able to take credit—and certain airports still struggle mightily against the clock.

No. 3 Chicago Midway International Airport (MDW)

3 of 16

Flights Delayed: 20.1%

Midway used to be considered the saner alternative to O’Hare, but this Windy City airport has had a much worse on-time record the past three years—and is making a repeat appearance in the bottom three. The good news? Midway has improved its timeliness by nearly 10 points, and at the very least, managed to break out of its two-year record as the No. 1 worst airport.

Best Time Window: Before 8 a.m.

Worst Time Window: Anytime after 3 p.m.
