​​U.S. – Known for its attention to punctuality, Delta Air Lines was the top performer among major United States-based carriers in airline and airport data behemoth OAG's new Punctuality League​ study.

Only one carrier—and a small one at that—bested No.1 Delta among the Top 10 North American airlines ranked according to overall punctuality throughout 2017. 

That small airline was Hawaiian Airlines, which operates primarily in a world where weather is almost never a factor.

Delta Air Lines' 82.76 percent on-time performance put it in the No. 2 slot, followed by No. 3 Alaska Airlines at 81.06 percent.

Then came the real dogfight for the No. 4 ranking between Chicago-based United Airlines​ and Fort Worth's American Airlines.

United won the fight, finishing the year with a 79.86 percent on-time performance. 

American wasn't very far behind, however, with a 78.97 percent on time performance, placing it fifth.​
