New Gtaa Website

Mon Jan 29, 2007 5:56 am


I was looking at it 30 minutes ago and it was the old style. Now its totally different! The arrivals/dep page shows GATES for arrivals and departures of most flights. SWEET! Now I can get excited if I see my plane is going to be parked next to a jumbo or some cool airline! If you click on the flight number it even shows when to arrive, where to go and a map of the road to the airport!!

Definately a welcome change. The previous one was table-based and generally not up to par. Terminal 2's info has been removed from the site as well. We've had the gate feature on I-FIDS for a while, but it was only available to those employees with I-share access. I asked that this feature be given to the public as well; apparently they listened. A quick tip - if you are using the flight info page, sort the info by date that way you won't get flights for the previous or next days. Another feature is that you can get a map from check-in to your gate by clicking on your flight and then Terminal Info. Check it out for yourselves and see the improvements.

What doesn't work well is their time sorting. The times are sorting alphabetically in that 07:05 am sorts before 07:05 pm but after 07:04 pm. Also, the date and time should be in one field so the date and time always sort together. I really didn't mind the old website. Also when I click 'Travel Advisories' it gives me an article titled 'GTAA Announces Appointment of New CEO'. I don't call that a Travel Advisory.

I think its a nice change, but I really prefer the old FIDS on GTAA.com that actually showed the airline logos, remember??
