(KGTV) -- Delta has been named 2019’s best airline by The Points Guy, beating Alaska Airlines and Southwest.

To come up with the rankings, the report looks at things like delays and pricing as well as comparing U.S. Department of Transportation numbers.

More than 92 percent of Delta’s planes arrive on time and the airline has the largest network of lounges and cities served, according to the report.

Ranked last on the list was Frontier, which placed 10th due to a poor on-time record, lackluster cabin features and “the habit of bumping paying passengers and — unsurprisingly — a high rate of customer complaints.”

Although Delta took the top overall spot, other airlines performed well in other areas. According to the report, JetBlue has the best inflight cabin features and Hawaiian is the least likely to cancel a flight.

If you’re hoping to save some cash on that summer vacation, Southwest has the lowest fees, according to the site.
