Supplementary notes

As of 2008, the Federal Aviation Administration reports delays for aircraft that accumulate a delay of 15 minutes or more throughout the duration of the flight. Each holding segment is redorded as one delay. The Operations Network (OPSNET) Database delay data dating back to the year 2000 have been converted to be consistent with the new definitions. Beginning in 2008 the FAA started to combine Air Route Traffic Control Center volume and Airport Terminal volume and retroactively applied this change through the year 2000.
Numbers may not add to totals due to rounding.
