I know that FlightAware works off of filed flightplans rather than timetables. But are the scheduled times given on the sight block times or flight times? I think that they would be block times, but I'm not sure.

Flight times, the same times filed in the flight plans.

Flight times. I always love to see how much airlines pad their schedules.

You guys are definitely right. I will be on NW560 in a couple weeks so I checked it. The block time is over an hour, but the duration on FlightAware is only around 40 min. Thanks for the clarification.

What's so bad about padding schedules? If an airline feels like there is a good chance of a delay, why shouldn't they be upfront about it? It costs them money to tie up their assets, so they would probably only do it if there was a strong reason to...

FlightAware does not have direct access to block time information, unless they created a server that checked each airline's website constantly. FlightAware's database get's its data from the FAA, and the FAA only really cares about off and on times. It's the airlines that have to worry about out and in times...because that's what the customer cares about...well the average customer at least.
