Delays at the LR Airport

Posted By on Thu, Oct 8, 2009 at 9:54 AM

Here's a link to that full Brookings report on on-time performance at the nation's airports. Little Rock National Airport is 18th worst among the top 100 metro areas. We suffer because the airport offers mostly puddle-jump flights to busy hubs. You know what rolls downhill.You can look up Little Rock-specific data here.

The morning paper's account didn't mention American Eagle, so I looked it up because I fly it to accumulate award miles. As I figured, its record isn't so hot.The August 2008 to August 2009 stats show American Eagle flights were late about 26.6 percent of the time against 31.7 for Comair, a Delta feeder; 28.1 for Delta feeder Atlantic Southeast; 25.9 for the Continental feeder airline ExpressJet; 20.4 percent for Delta flights 17.1 percent for Southwest, and 15.4 percent for Northwest.

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
