COPY-Fort Lauderdale flight has worst on-time performance in country

Associated Press - April 3, 2008 2:04 PM ET

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) - JetBlue's evening flight from Newark, New Jersey, to Fort Lauderdale had the worst single on-time performance in February.

That's according to data out today from the U.S. Transportation Department.

The flight to South Florida arrived an average of 69 minutes late every time it took off.

All told, 31% of commercial flights in the U.S. arrived late, were canceled or diverted in February.

That continues a period of historically poor performance for an industry plagued by safety concerns and pinched by fuel costs.

But it's still better than February 2007, which was the worst month on record with 33% of flights arriving late.
