Hawaiian Airlines posted the best on-time performance in August for the seventh consecutive month among the nation's 16 largest carriers .

The state's largest carrier, which also had the second-fewest cancellations, was punctual on 94.3 percent of its flights, according to the Air Travel Consumer Report issued today by the U.S. Department of Transportation. A flight is considered on time if it arrivals at its destination within 15 minutes of the scheduled time.

The national on-time average for the 16 airlines was 78.8 percent.

Hawaiian ranked second overall in the category of fewest flight cancellations for August at 0.000780 percent, representing five cancellations out of 6,408 total flights. Delta just edged out Hawaiian for first at 0.000736 percent, representing 51 cancellations out of 69,327 flights.

In other categories, Hawaiian ranked fifth for fewest mishandled baggage reports with 2.21 per 1,000 passengers and ninth for consumer complaints with 1.08 per 100,000 passengers.

I'm guessing that this high on-time performance is at least somewhat due to a large portion of it's flights being neighbor island flights.

... probably because there is no competition, so you gotta get on board (to get to where you want to here in Hawaii) or suck wind bruddah! and even that won't propel you in the skies over these islands. We pay the price! I figured out that HawaiianAir does the right thing...they early board and give enough time for "last minute boarders with confirmed reservations" and then they shut the door, push back and leave early. If you are confirmed and not at the gate to board - wait for the next flight. Don't hold up the rest of the passengers waiting for you.

They don't let you board the plane if you have luggage, if you don't check in 40 minutes before the flight leaves.
