This document is a highlight edition of the Annual Airline Delay Trends Report published since 1974. These reports provide estimates of block, airborne, and ground delays for approximately 325 route segments connecting 20 of the most active U.S. airports, and serviced by 19 major domestic scheduled air carriers. Delay information as presented in this summary edition consists of airborne and ground data for each of the 20 airports in the study, displayed in both table and graph form, for the years 1972 through 1975 for the following categories: (1) Total traffic activity for route segments arriving at each of the 20 airports by "busy" and "dull" time interval ("Busy" - 7:00 - 22:59, "Dull" - 23:00 - 06:59); (2) Average airborne delays for route segments arriving at each of the 20 airports, by "busy" and "dull" time intervals; and (3) Average ground times and delays for route segments departing and arriving the 20 airports, by "busy" and "dull" time intervals. A table showing the monthly average of airborne arrival delays at a summary airport which represents the total of the 20 study airports is also included. (Author)
