October 2008 best month ever for Frontier baggage handling
As Frontier Airlines strives towards exiting Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection, its staff are playing their part as the airline's operational performance continues to impress, with new company records being set in the Department of Transportation's (DOT) monthly "Air Travel Consumer Report". The report details the operational performance of the USA's 19 largest air carriers.
In the DOT's October 2008 statistics released this week, Frontier posted a company record for lowest mishandled bag rate (MBR), ranking third among all carriers. The October performance record marked the fourth consecutive month in which Frontier has ranked among the top five major carriers for lowest MBR.
For the fourth consecutive month, Frontier ranked among the top three major carriers in on-time arrival performance. The 89.13% on-time performance in October ranked third among the recognised major carriers and was less than a percentage point behind the monthly leader in that category.
Frontier ranked second among the major carriers in overall flight completion performance, or fewest flight cancellations, finishing just 0.02 percentage points behind the monthly leader. Frontier's October performance followed 16 consecutive months where Frontier led the major carriers in overall flight completion performance.
Once again, Frontier reported no flights on the DOT's list of chronically delayed or cancelled flights (over 70% of the time).
