    Nate Silver, of 538, who used to be a baseball statistics geek, has an interesting take on airline performances. He tweeted earlier on Virgin America being Michael Jordan of airlines.

    Silver is obsessed with the "fastest" flight more than planes meeting their published schedules; the former matters far less when planning a trip. And this data/story is from March 2015, FWIW.
