El Al flights arriving late are nothing new, but the airline reached a new low for the month of June: the airline came in 40th place out of 40 airlines rated for how likely to be on time they were. The Israeli company had the most flights which were 15 minutes or more late, reports Danny Sadeh for Ynet.
The report was put out by Flightstats, considered to be the world leader in flight statistics and real-time airline flight reporting. The company looked at 2,667 El Al flights in the month of June, which constituted 87% of all El Al flights for that month. It turns out that 64 percent of the flights were delayed with an average delay of 45 minutes. In other words, El Al was only on time 36% of the time.
Ynet added that Flightstats also released its bi-annual report, whereby El Al was also ranked the least on time airline in the world. Only 47 percent of El Al flights arrived on time since January of 2016. The average delay was 45 minutes.
