AIRLINE DELAY TRENDS 1972 - 1977

This document is an updated edition (data for the years 1976-1977 are included) 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 the 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 1977. This information was obtained from the Civil Aeronautics Board ER-586 Service Segment data in combination with other airline operational data. With this report, a new format is introduced for presenting comparative estimates of trends in airline delays. (Author)
