"The Top Four On-Time Airlines in the Country: Sorry, 2, 3 and 4 haven't arrived yet.) / If you haven't been flying Northwest lately, you've been flying behind the times. For the past 18 months, the most consistently on-time airline in the country has been Northwest.* [*Based on DOT Air Travel Consumer Report domestic statistics for the seven largest airlines over the 18-month period ending June 1991.] At Northwest we believe in things like punctuality. Service. And innovation. You can see that in everything from our reservation system to our baggage handling to the new routes we're opening across the country and around the world. All of this may surprise you, but you watch. In the days to come, Northwest will be surprising a lot of people. Northwest Airlines The Number One On-Time Airline"
