Travel good news, bad news: According to the U.S. Department of Transportation, airline delays are setting records — like the government needs to tell you that. The good news is this: Southwest, the official airlines of the rexblog, had the highest on-time arrival rate at 75.2 percent. (They also have the best blog — however, that’s not a government statistic yet.) As I’ll be spending several hours on Southwest planes this month (starting tonight), I’m happy to note the on-time arrival statistic, as it will provide a basis for comparison that I will also note on this blog. Observation: For business travelers using Southwest, this week is the beginning of a short period of time when the chaos settles down a bit, as the family vacationers stay home.
