Sample size is the number of flights for which FlightStats was able to capture arrival data. For most airlines sample size exceeded 90 percent of all flights. A flight is considered on time if it arrives at the gate within 15 minutes of the scheduled gate time. Cancellations were subtracted from the sample size before on-time percentages were calculated. Only airlines with a sample size of at least 100,000 flights were included.
