Yes, you read that correctly! The last time that United Airlines was able to report that all regional partner carriers had successfully completed their flights, YouTube had just been founded and Michael Jackson was cleared of child molestation charges…that was 2005. That all changed on November 1, 2016, when United celebrated a 100% completion rate among the 2,445 flights scheduled across their partner carriers. The on-time percentage was also solid, finishing at 92.4% for the day (UA’s internal goal was set at 83.3%).
The United Express SVP had this to say:
“This is a fantastic accomplishment. I appreciate the focus and energy it takes to produce these results.”
