Accuracy Of United Flight Information

Fri Feb 17, 2006 5:08 am

Today is a dark and stormy day in Chicago, and I am leaving on a United flight for FLL this afternoon, so I am checking United's website (and waiting for email/cell phone updates) for flight update information. Trouble is that United's info just doesn't seem helpful.

For example, as of now (2pm. EST), Flight 1516 is showing a scheduled AND estimated departure time of 1:15 pm, even though nearly an hour has passed since 1:15. What gives?? Shouldn't UA at least update the "Estimated" information?

United Flight 1516
Operated as UNITED FOR TED
Details Chicago, IL (ORD)
Thu, Feb 16
Scheduled: 1:15 PM
Estimated: 1:15 PM
Reason: Schedule change due to Late Arriving Aircraft

its possible that it was just overlooked, normally UA's info is spot on, I have actually been sitting at a gate and gotten more accurate updates from there web site and phone # then from the gate agents
