Japan Airlines Corp. topped the on-time arrival list for the world’s 33 major airlines in 2010, ranking No. 1 for the second straight year, the airline said Wednesday, quoting a recently released report from U.S. information services firm Conducive Technology Corp.

The survey found 89.90 percent of JAL flights arrived no more than 15 minutes later than scheduled during the year, according to the airline, which is currently undergoing a court-supervised rehabilitation process.

The carrier made a range of efforts to secure punctuality, including using employees from various sections to help clean planes after arrival if their departure was likely to be delayed, it said.
