Same Flight Listed Multiple Times On Flightaware?

Mon Aug 23, 2010 7:15 pm

Hope this is an appropriate forum for this question (this didn't seem to fit neatly into any of the aviation-related forums).   

I've noticed many times on the Flightaware flight activity/tracking screen for my home airport, that certain flights (and it seems to be random) will sometimes display multiple times. It's always in the Scheduled Arrivals or Scheduled Departures sections. Sometimes none of the flights are repeated, and sometimes one will be, or more than one will be, and that then crowds out other scheduled flights.

For instance (not sure if I can paste a screen print on these posts), in Scheduled Departures for today, there are 2 separate DL flights listed like that (one listed twice, the other listed 3 times). Is anyone here familiar enough with Flightaware's flight tracker to know what causes this, or if there's anything on my end I can do to avoid/correct it?

Thx!
Finally made it to an airline mecca!

It's a glitch. Maybe due to rescheduling/cancelations/diversions etc. Flightaware always seems to handle those situations poorly

It's still doing the same thing again today! Here's what it looks like:

Scheduled Departures (More)
Ident Type To Depart Arrive
ASQ5331 CRJ2 Hartsfield-Jackson Intl (KATL) 01:03p EDT 02:00p EDT
FLG3733 CRJ2 Detroit Metro Wayne Co (KDTW) 01:14p EDT 02:49p EDT
AWI3551 CRJ2 Charlotte/Douglas Intl (KCLT) 01:15p EDT 01:44p EDT
DAL1114 MD88 Hartsfield-Jackson Intl (KATL) 04:45p EDT 05:53p EDT
DAL1813 MD88 Hartsfield-Jackson Intl (KATL) 06:25a EDT 07:31a EDT
DAL1114 MD88 Hartsfield-Jackson Intl (KATL) 04:45p EDT 05:53p EDT
DAL1813 MD88 Hartsfield-Jackson Intl (KATL) 06:25a EDT 07:31a EDT
DAL1114 MD88 Hartsfield-Jackson Intl (KATL) 04:45p EDT 05:53p EDT

Not a big deal, but it just doesn't accurately reflect our airport's activity.
