O’Hare & Midway, worst for on-time departures

This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated. Please look at the time stamp on the story to see when it was last updated.

Airline passengers have better luck arriving on-time at Chicago’s two big airports than they do taking off.

Midway’s on-time departure rate through October was just over 68 percent, landing it in last place among the country’s biggest airports at getting passengers in the air on-time.

That means on average, about two of every three flights left on time.

O’Hare isn’t much better— just over 70 percent.

Both airports’ on-time records have declined significantly in the last year.

    After bulldozing half of Bensenville, encroaching into DuPage County, and extending the runways so that now the planes are practically scraping our rooftops — all done in the name of improving O'Hare's efficiency and on-time record, I feel like the taxpayers have been "had" on this one. You can put all the concrete you want on the ground, but the sky remains limited.
