It's the last busy travel weekend of the summer. And while it might be too late, we have a list of which airlines to avoid - and which ones to use if you want an on-time flight.

A study, conducted by Price4Limo, collected data from the Bureau of Transportation Statistics during Labor Day weekend from 2017 to 2022. This, combined with data covering the 50 most-traveled airports from 2019 to 2022, revealed the best and worst airlines you can fly with during the holiday rush.

As for BEST AIRLINES, it might help if you're heading to Hawaii.

Only six percent of Hawaiian Airline’s flights are delayed on average during Labor Day weekend.

Following close behind are Delta (9%) and Alaska Airlines (11%).

The airlines TO AVOID include a fair amount of budget planes. At the top spot for most delayed on Labor Day is JetBlue Airways with 20% of it's flight's delayed. Followed by Allegiant Air (18%), and Frontier Airlines (18%).

JetBlue also has the highest average diversion rate, meaning changing its flight path from the originally planned destination to an alternative airport.
