100 Words On: How to Increase the Odds of Booking an On-Time Flight

Whether you’re traveling for business or pleasure, flight delays are the bane of every commuter. Government statistics consistently show that morning flights departing between six and seven have the best on-time records, with a steady decay in punctuality as the day progresses; it’s worst between 6 p.m. and 9 p.m. That’s because flight delays due to air-traffic congestion, maintenance, crew issues, and late-arriving airplanes cascade throughout the day — and this phenomenon is more pronounced during the holidays.

The bottom line: The next time you’re planning to travel by airplane, remember: the early bird not only catches the worm — it usually arrives at its intended destination on time too.
