    According to FlightStats, which compiles daily information, Air Canada ranked No. 2 in June among the major North American carriers for getting travellers to the gate within 15 minutes of the scheduled arrival, at 81.28 per cent.
    At the top of the list is Alaska Airlines of Seattle, at 86.8 per cent, and No. 3 is Delta Air Lines, at 76.39 per cent.
    Note that the statistics, also published by Forbes, are for what FlightStats considers North America’s major airlines.
    Air Canada holds a different, lower rank for all North American carriers, and different again among the world’s airlines.
    Notable for Air Canada is how it has moved up the FlightStats majors list, from No. 3 in May, even though the percentage was higher, at 82.86, and No. 6 in April, at 75.45.
    It ranked No. 8 in each of the first three months of the year, with percentages ranging from 59.2 per cent to 70.2 per cent (Source G&M
  2. They are working harder to get on time takeoffs and are now refusing to check bags that don't get to the counter within 45 minutes of takeoff. Their in charges are making sure everything they need is onboard and are making announcements to get people seated and buckled in well before takeoff time. They are also boarding flights earlier and it seems to work. I just came back from PEK and the doors were closed and the cabin ready 3 minutes prior to takeoff.
