No Surprise! Air India Among Top 3 Worst Airlines of 2016

In what must come as no surprise to New Jersey desis, Air India has made it to FlightStats‘ list of Worst Airlines in 2016 for its poor on-time record.

For 2016, Air India was the third worst airline for its pathetic on-time performance.

Air India Among Top 3 Worst Airlines of 2016

Going by FlightStats’ figures, the odds of a delay on a long-haul Air India flight is as high as 38.71%.

Desi friends who occasionally travel on Air India have nothing but curses for the crappy airline for its awful service and poor on-time performance. In recent months, some of my Indian friends have shifted their loyalties and started flying to Mumbai on Air China (via Beijing).

The odds of a delay on Air China is lower than on Air India by 6%.
