WEB BUZZ

A central source for flight statistics

July 08, 2007|Vani Rangachar

When United, US Airways and Northwest flight schedules melted down last month, Joe Brancatelli of JoeSentMe.com (a subscription-only site for business fliers) pointed customers to FlightStats.com, which helps track flights.

What's hot: FlightStats aggregates information about flight status and airport delays from hundreds of sources. Historical data can help you to avoid peak delay times when planning a flight. It has a lot of ancillary information too -- links to consular offices, travel warnings and advisories, deals, airport parking etc.

What's not: The pages seem cluttered with ads, links and info. But that's really just a quibble; it has much valuable news you can use.
