Now Arriving…


Mr. Tuomimonster has a friend that works at a large commercial airline. She’s due to fly in to Portland tonight and we wanted the most efficient way to get her arrival information for pick up.

She recommended we track her flight using Flight Aware, a website that is (shhh!) more accurate than the large commercial airline’s own trackers.


Flight Aware’s “proprietary flight arrival time algorithms combined with FlightAware’s powerful, intuitive, responsive, and reliable web-based interface yield the most capable and useful flight tracking application and service” (source: FlightAware website). According to our friend, it provides times based on the tail of the aircraft, which the airline does not.

So far, so good.  The FlightAware site is tracking her flight 10 minutes earlier than the airline is… we’ll see who’s right.
