Best way to see flight delay status in real time?
I had been using TripIt Pro for this, but on my flight for today (BA 2276 LAS->LGW), TripIt Pro has been reporting bad information for the past 10 hours. There was a 3 hour delay on this flight, but then it was pulled in to no delay according to FlightAware over 10 hours ago.
Neither TripIt nor Google have updated to show the new status. I do see the new status on FlightAware.com and confirmed it by calling British Airways.
What sites do you folks use to track flights in real time? It seems like FlightAware has better data, at least on this one.
I use FlightAware and it seems consistently reliable.
Agree about Flight Aware. I’ve been using TripIt Pro for years but did have an issue with them in January where they kept telling me the wrong gate. I did mention it to them and they were very interested in getting the info correct so be sure to reach out to them. However, be aware they’re at the mercy of the airport feeding them the data so sometimes it may be out of their hands.
