Industry reliability across the major trades quarter-on-quarter has increased: The transatlantic trade posted a 16% jump to 68%; the transpacific trade up five points to 60%; and the Asia’ Europe up 13 points to 62%. This contributed to an industry average of 56 % schedule reliability for the quarter.

The 75.9% average score is 20 points higher than the industry average and 18 points higher than the average of the top 20 lines.
