How can this delayed flight arrive almost on time?

How can this delayed flight arrive almost on time?

    Hi was just looking at Dublin’s transatlantic flights today and noticed DL’s JFK (DL45) flight seemed to be substantially delayed (again, they seem to have had a few delays iver the last few weeks). But then I saw that it was arriving only 13 mins late, with the green symbol suggesting on time, how can an almost 5 hour delayed flight arrive only 13 mins late?? Thanks!! (Can’t put image in from my phone, but it’s on FlirghtRadar24 [DL45 DUB/JFK], scheduled departure: 11:25, actual departure: 16:17, scheduled arrival: 18:00, estimated arrival: 18:13)

    Airlines sometimes pad their schedule’s a bit too much, sometimes to account for expected delays. Othertimes, there are REALLY STRONG tailwinds that help aircraft fly a bit faster than usual.
