The complete report about the data collected during the Timetable 2007 period (from 10.12.2006 to 08.12.2007) is now available [link].
The results show that the CIS Pendolinos constantly have a higher rate of delays, compared to conventional trains, and a much higher delay rate than the average SBB rate [link]. The tendency shows no sign of improvement; on the contrary, in the second half of the year the situation got even worse [link].
