Accessing FAA flight data
In the Rolling Stone article, the writer mentioned how you used to use obscure FAA flight data to predict which flights would be late. What is this data? And where can I find it?

It’s really as anticlimactic as that? Of course I know flightstats, but if that’s what the article was referring to that’s completely absurd.
If you’ve read Ben’s response to the article, I think they might have sensationalized things just a tad.
