Worst: No. 8 (tie) Orlando International Airport (MCO)

19 of 22

Flights Delayed: 22.3%

Thought theme-park lines were enough to sour a fairy-tale vacation? Try leaving Orlando at dinnertime or later. At least a quarter of flights departing this Central Florida hub run late throughout the evening. But MCO isn’t all wicked: on-time percentages stay above 90 nearly all morning. And the airport’s giant aquarium and King Kong video arcade will help you pass any added wait time.

Best Time Window: Before 1 p.m.

Worst Time Window: 10–11 p.m.
