Arrived and landed are two different metrics for the same flight.
Scheduled and planned are also two different metrics. "Scheduled" appears when the system has been programmed with a regularly-scheduled flight. "Planned" goes in when the flight plan is entered, apparently. Flytecomm also lists some flights from the previous, say, 24 hours, as well as flights in the future. So you'll sometimes get several different entries for the same flight number. If you drill down on the flight number it will be clearer, because you'll see the DATE listed, which you don't here. Also, on international flights, flytecomm doesn't always operate the same way it does on purely domestic ones.
