Planes, trains, automobiles

Can’t speak to train and automobile travel too much, but I did come across a great resource that’s especially timely as a lot of people across the U.S. get ready to board airplanes for holiday travel this week and for the next several weeks.

It’s a Website called, offering flight delay information for domestic airports in real-time. The FAA is working on ways to give travelers info on what to expect before they get to the airport. This is one way of doing that.

The site refreshes every few moments, and allows you to view delay status and times, and reasons for delays on an interactive map of the United States.

It’s always a good idea to check on specific flight status with your airline, too. But this site is a great tool to help you avoid ending up like Steve Martin and John Candy.

I hope helps, I look forward to using it
next time I fly. I did hear about in the news but not
too great detail, thanks for the information.

Tom O'Brien (chicago il):

I have been using this for a couple of years - and without fail it is more timely and accurate that the information provided by the airline flight information systems or gate agents.

Happy travels

Why doesn't Boeing put some faces and stories behind the 787. It would be intriguing to see the engineers prepare the first 787 for its first electrical power up, engine runs, taxi tests, and finally the first flights. Come on Randy put everyone back on the Boeing 787 World Design team. Because right now were feeling like we have been benched!
