Time is money.
In the case of United Airlines, it equates to $100.
The Chicago-based airline announced Tuesday that it plans to reward many of its front-line employees $100 each for helping the carrier reach an on-time arrival rate of at least 80% for domestic and international flights in January.
The airline ended the month with an 82.8% domestic on-time arrival rate and an 80.5% international on-time rate, resulting in the best combined performance for the month in 10 years.
It was not the first time United has tossed around some cash for meeting on-time goals.
The airline most recently rewarded its employees $100 each for reaching the 85.5% on-time arrival rate for its domestic flights and 81.2% for international flights for the month of November 2012.
