Awesome Flight Tracker

As a pilot for a major airline, this is one of my daily tools. Fast, easy data entry, and easy to read info make this the best app of its kind. I fly about 10 flights every week, and it mirrors my schedule to my calendar for my family to keep up with my frequent schedule changes. Bad weather? Canceled flight? Just search for all available flights, or for a specific airline, it's all easy with this app. Even check to see when the incoming flight will arrive at your gate, or check seating charts before you book. I use it all day, every day at work (gate change notifications!). Better than any app my fellow pilots have shown me. My recommendation is to get the Pro version. For a few dollars it gives you push notifications for gate changes, etc. could save you a long walk or a missed flight. That's worth a few bucks!

Update: have been using this app for a few years now. Previous versions have had a few minor glitches, but the latest version seems to have fixed everything. I'm 30 years into this airline career with one of the big 3, and this app is faster than what my own airline provides for us. It's still my go-to source for quick gate and weather info. I have over 300 separate trips in the history in this app - each one has from 1 to 4 or more days of flying. I highly recommend it for both flight crew and passengers.

Data Accuracy

Was going to write long review about everything that I like and dislike about this app. But recently, it seems the data is not accurate and so therefore I really don’t need to review the app atm. I was going to email the author of the app from within the app but you can only email the author if you have an email account configured on your iPhone. (??). What I was going to say to the author is I’ve noticed that the early arrival times of flights is often not updated in the app. For example, today I arrived to Chengdu China at 5:49 AM. However your app says I arrived at 5:23 AM. 5:23 AM is incorrect. I have screenshots to illustrate my point but I am not able to submit them because I don’t use the default iOS mail application. Both UA and FlightAware report 5:49 AM. Flight Update Pro reports 5:23 AM. Another example is Norwegian Air. This data seems to be incorrect across the board. A question for the author would be, from which tables do you pull your data? And why would your data be different than what the actual carrier states is accurate? Thank you!

Developer Response ,

You can absolutely email us using any email program you wish. Please go into the Prefs screen within Flight Update Pro and tap the About field. There you will find our email address which you can use. We would be very interested in seeing your screenshots which will allows us to investigate thoroughly the issue you are reporting. I know our app will display the time when the plane actually touches down. This should be displayed as "Landed." Then it should be updated later with the time it reaches the gate and show "Arrived at Gate." Is it possible the 5:23 AM time our app is reporting is the time it "touched down?" If so the app should then have updated with the "arrived at gate" time.

With your screenshots we can then go back and investigate and fix any outstanding issues.

Thank you.

I am puzzled by taxi driver leaving bad review and claims. I use this application on my travels and I can tell you this is most useful app I had in years. The most important, in my tight time tells me gate number and all updates abut flight! Great! Thank to this app, recently in Rome I wasn’t late an my plane. Thumbs up!
UPDATE! It is still good application, but they want subscription on push notification which means this app is not longer better than other free apps! After I paid $10 they want me now to subscribe! It is not honest at all!
UPGRADE: It iz amazing app! It helped me during my travels, even I directed my friend in different country to get her on her gate! It is just unbelievable! If I could give this app 10 stars, I would without any hesitation...

Developer Response ,

The cost to us for the most timely, accurate flight status updates has increased severely. The free apps do not compare to the timeliness and accuracy of the information you will receive from our app. We regret having to do this but it was either charge or shutdown the app. Stick with our app and you will continue to never be late for your plane.
