Big photos below.
Ever rush to Denver International Airport only to spend hours waiting for your flight to arrive and/or take off? You're not alone -- but which carriers do the best job of preventing such problems? Fox31 analyzed the 232,174 flights that departed from DIA last year, then measured the performance of the five main airlines -- ExpressJet, Frontier, SkyWest, Southwest and United -- to determine the percentage of time when they took off exactly as scheduled and arrived right on the mark or early. And frankly, the numbers aren't all that impressive for even the best of the bunch.

See the photo-illustrated breakdown below, and click here to watch the Fox31 report.

Fifth best on-time push-back:

5 days British Air from Berlin-London-Chicago-Denver -- weather and fog delays and the finally the blizzard of Dec 2007 in Denver; my baggage was lost. RTD bus service to downtown was stranded-- waited 5 hours just to get downtown.

Crapitalism at work, ladies and gentlemen. Ever since the airline industry was deregulated, it's been a one-way race to the bottom...

They all suck. We as consumers quit demanding comfort, safety, and accountability and the result of that folly is...crap.
