Airline delay statistics

A 15 January 2008 article in the Dominion Post reports that Pacific Blue is calling on the New Zealand Government to force airlines to make their on-time performance records public, "despite lengthy delays on its new domestic network." Some governments do collate and publish such data (see previous post).

Much such airline delay performance, including for New Zealand, is already available on the web from FlightStats.

Under "Planning Ahead" click on On-time Performance Ratings. Then in the Flight Rating part use the tabs and type in an airline, flight number or sector that is of interest. Note that all of Air New Zealand's A320 fleet is actually covered separately under the code FOM.
