The Chicago Sun-Times reports (http://bit.ly/1ifKTvg) that in a month that had several days of brutally cold weather and nearly three feet snow, O'Hare ranked last among 29 of the nation's largest airports for on-time arrivals. Midway was second worst.

For departures, Midway was last in on-time operations, and O'Hare next to last.

The Bureau of Transportation Statistics counts a flight as "on time" if it arrived or departed a gate less than 15 minutes after its scheduled time.
