Flight Info. Site

Mon Sep 25, 2006 5:10 am

I have just stumbled across a flight information site - http://www.flightstats.com

Does anyone know about this site - how accurate it is and is it genuinely relatime.

Thanx.

Looks to be pretty accurate to me...I'm not sure, though...I only tried it with one flight that I compared with two other sites (the airline's and Flightaware).

Yes - I have been checking out a few flights too and compared the results with the individual airport and airline sites - it seems surprisingly accurate - and free to register - seems too good to be true though...... I'll see how it checks out over the next few days.

Looks like a wannabe FlightAware to me, but does seem accurate.

Agreed - lacks the features of FlightAware - but on the other hand - provides global information - CMB and DXB for example. Maybe one to watch.....

Seems ok to me.
Should be something like FlightAware.
