If you’re flying Frontier or JetBlue in the near future, don’t be surprised if your flight doesn’t exactly arrive on time.

Just 74.4 percent of Frontier flights and 74.8 percent of JetBlue flights successfully arrived on time in 2019. Meanwhile, Delta and Alaska Airlines ranked the best, with 85.69 percent and 82.01 percent of all flights making it to the gate on time.
