Delta Air Lines is putting its money where its mouth is when it comes to on-time performance and its record of completing scheduled flights.

The Atlanta-based carrier will give its corporate business travelers credit toward future flights if its competitors — American Airlines and United Airlines — have a better on-time performance and rate of completing scheduled domestic flights without a cancellation for a full calendar year.

The credits, which may be expanded to international flights, vary based on the delays and cancellations suffered by businesses with a Delta travel contract.

On Friday, the airline marked 100 straight days of completing all scheduled flights without a cancellation, a record for the carrier. During the period, Delta flew nearly 800,000 flights, carrying 113 million passengers.

Delta, American and United all offer similar seats and destinations.
