US airports dealt with increasing delays in June.  According to FlightView's On-Time Performance Report for Global Airports for June, fewer than 7 in 10 flights (68.4%) arrived at US airports within 15 minutes of scheduled arrival time last month.  That figure compares to 73.4% in May and 73.6% in April.

As a result, on-time departures (flights leaving the gate no later than 14 minutes after schedule) at US airports dropped to 69% in June, down from 74.2% in May and 75.3% in April.
