Is there any way to track the activity of a particular plane? For example, if I fly AA911 from LAX to MIA, where does that plane go from there (I think that particular plane goes on to Santiago, Chile), and how long until it's back at LAX flying the same route to MIA?

If your asking how to follow the routing of a particular aircraft ... say AA Ship 7AD (a 777)... I don't know of any airline that makes that information available on the 'net. It would be great if they did, but what benefit would the air carriers gain from doing so?

Individual ship routings are not public, wouldn't
do much good anyway. Airlines swap aircraft on
and off for many reasons - late inbound, out of
service, maint delay, equipment onboard,
positioning, etc.

The airline tracks it in order to position the
aircraft for mechanical servicing and other
things as well.

A desired routing will be dropped to keep the
schedule running on time if possible.

I've had as many as 4 different ships assigned
in a one hour period during a extensively
delayed flight. The aircraft routing display isn't
a high priority function and often lags the
real world by hours.

So to answer your question... At the start of
the day most airlines have a good "guess" as
to what will be where, by the end of the day
it will be anyone's "guess". (grin)

Go to this website....www.flytecomm.com/Products/FlyteTrax/flytetrax.htm

We use this program to trak our flights at work. But you will notice that we have to pay for it. It also only traks IFR flights.
