LAX one of top 5 on time airports in US

People use many different airports when vacationing at our resort, The Terra Cotta Inn clothing optional resort and spa located in sunny Palm Springs, California.

They fly into Palm Springs (PSP) only 5 miles away, Ontario, California airport (70 miles away), Orange County (95 miles away), Long Beach (120 miles away), Burbank (110miles away), Los Angeles (LAX) 120 miles away, San Diego (140 miles away), Las Vegas (280 miles away), Phoenix (280 miles away), and San Francisco (480 miles away).

One nice thing I tell people about LAX is you can get non stops from most cities in the US.

Now the Bureau of Transportation says LAX is one of the top 5 on time airports in the US. That means a lot on your vacation. What's one of the worst? Miami! It is the 3rd worst in the US.

We have had many guests who have gone to the Caribbean and they were forced to stay overnight in Miami because they missed connecting flights. Who wants to lose an extra 24 hours of vacation just because the airport has so many delays? This is one of the many reasons we find nudists are no longer going to the Caribbean and booking their vacations now with us in sunny Palm Springs.

Here's the story:

America’s Best and Worst Airports 2009

What are the odds your next flight will be delayed? Depends on what airport you’re flying from

We all know the drill: you show up at the airport with plenty of time to spare, only to discover that your flight’s been delayed and now you have hours to kill. Or worse yet, you’ve already boarded your flight and now you’re stuck on the tarmac.

Where is this most likely to happen? You can’t eliminate delays, of course, but you can play the odds—some airports have better track records than others (as do some airlines, which is why we rank the best and worst airlines for on-time performance). So, as we do every year, Travel + Leisure gathered statistics from the Bureau of Transportation Statistics on flights that departed more than 15 minutes behind schedule (in this instance from April 1, 2008, to March 31, 2009) and found out the best—and worst—airports for on-time performance.

...So consult this list before you book your next ticket: if you can fly out of an alternate airport like Midway, the odds are better that you’ll arrive at your destination on time. And these days, on-time arrivals are just about the only thing airlines aren’t charging extra for.
