UK Govt or CAA publishing reliability stats

In the USA, the Dept of Transportation publishes figures on a regular basis (monthly ?) showing how reliable and punctual each major airline is. Because it's standardised in methodology, numbers can be compared. Because it's from Govt, airlines cannot make it difficult for pax to find the data

Given the chaos in the UK at the moment, I'm wondering whether the Dept of Transport or CAA in the UK should do something similiar. Yes, that includes airlines based outside the UK with large numbers of flights to/from the UK. I am NOT saying the Govt should interfere with airline operations or change anything if flights are delayed or cancelled... just that major carriers to UK airports should be forced to report to UK Govt or CAA in a standard way their reliability and punctuality data, and for Govt or the CAA to publish that data each month on the web.

Of course, no airline wants to look incompetent... so to avoid embarassment and maintain consumer confidence, major carriers would be motivated to ensure operational stability

Any thoughts ?

These stats were published in the UK, I think by Govt. I'm guessing they stopped in 2020. Are the carriers pleased they have not yet been restarted??

Figures are published by the CAA on a monthly basis - April figures available this week. Go to the CAA website, select "Data and Analysis" from the pictograms and then under the first menu on the left, you'll see the link to flight punctuality.
