  1. “This Surprising Airlines [sic]”?

    Come on Gary, you’re better than stooping to click bait headlines. You have enough legit content that you don’t need to dive into the click bait sewer.

    You are constantly maligning AA / UA / DL for copying each other and righty so.

    Take the high road here. Stand on the merits of your site and do away with the click bait.

    What’s next, following TPG and telling us the “8 Most Instagramable places in Austin”? 🙂

  2. Anytime you see the word “this” in a headline it’s clickbait. Better headline: “Surprise: United Tops On-Time List”. I’ll bet that gets as many clicks. Of course, it’s Gary’s site and he can do what he wants regardless of feedback.

  3. On time statistics are so useless anyway. If the plane is 14:59 late to the gate, its still “on time”. Delta pads their numbers super hard by adding in even more buffer time. Blah blah, dumb statistic is dumb.
