    MDW was by far the worst of 29 US airports tracked for on-time performance in December. This is almost entirely linked to WN. Part of it is due to the fact that they are using it as more of a hub, routing more connecting flights through there; and unlike the other majors, they have a policy of holding flights for connecting pax. They had 67.3 on-time arrivals, which matched MDW's 67.42 percent on-time arrival statistic. 49.87% of MDW flights left on time, putting them over 10% worse than the second worst ranked airport, SFO.
