NYC airports have worst on-time records

Fewer people are expected to fly this holiday season. But travelers shouldn't expect a full reprieve from the horrid flight delays of Thanksgivings past, especially if they are headed to New York City. Despite some recent improvements, the Big Apple's three major airports continue to make up the worst air travel bottleneck in the country.

Newark, LaGuardia and Kennedy ranked first, second and third worst in on-time arrivals among major U.S. airports for the first nine months of the year.

About a third of all flights into Newark and LaGuardia have come in late this year, with things just a little better at JFK.

Aviation officials have been working on the problem for two years.
