    About 79% of flights on all U.S. passenger airlines arrived within 15 minutes of scheduled time, compared with 76% in 2011, according to FlightStats' tracking of more than 8 million flights. Only 1.4% of flights were canceled last year, compared with 2.1% in 2011. Fewer flights had "excessive" delays of 45 minutes or more. And fewer domestic bags were lost or delayed through October, the most recent period reported by the DOT.
    On the downside, the frequency of airlines involuntarily bumping ticketed passengers increased, as did the overall rate that travelers filed complaints to the DOT.
