Hawaiian Airlines led U.S. carriers in punctuality in February during a month that saw many other airlines post terrible on-time numbers.

The state's largest carrier delivered 90.1 percent of its flights on time, beating the national average of 70.7 by nearly 20 percentage points, according to a U.S. Department of Transportation report released Thursday.

Hawaiian, which is insulated from most of the mainland's bad weather, also had the fewest cancellations with four out of 5,418 flights, a cancellation rate of 0.1 percent.

In other categories, Hawaiian was third for fewest complaints with 0.53 per 100,000 passengers and sixth for fewest mishandled baggage reports with 2.85 per 1,000 passengers

STOP THE MADNESS. This statistic is such bs. February was a horrible weather winter month with thousands of cancellations from the MAJOR airlines. Hawaiian is such a minor player in the scheme of things, they should not even be counted in these stats. Oh yeah.......they never get weather related cancellations, but they do get Airbus related cancellations.

I sat just outside the gate for over an hour due to mechanical problems. I hope they didn't cal it an on time departure because we left the gate.

If the airplane sits on the tarmac for hours, but pulled away from the gate on time, the flight is still considered on time. It is timed from when they pull away from the gate, so they may pull away from the gate and sit for hours and still get a on time performance
