Among the worst offenders, the report lists American Eagle, Pinnacle and United Airlines. If you want to catch your plane on time, Aloha, Hawaiin and U.S. Airways ranked the best.

Airline baggage claims are the worst they've been since 1989.

Cancellations aren't looking good either if you're flying American Eagle, Pinnacle or Mesa Airlines. However, if you're flying Frontier, Hawaain or Aloha Airlines you're in the clear.
