Posted by Stephen Leonard on Jun 30, 2015 @ 11:47 AM

Earlier this month we got a call from a consultant working on airspace issues for the FAA. They knew we had the historical flight information he needed (due in large part to our longstanding relationship with and work for the FAA), and in fact we did. Now they are putting that data to work to help the FAA ameliorate those airspace issues.

The FAA Says Travelers Face 90-Minute Delays This Summer

Recent headlines, FAA chief: Flights at major hubs face 90-minute delays, USAToday 2/27/13, and Airlines Dispute Planned Air-Controller Cuts, WSJ 3/21/13, have trumpeted the inevitable air traffic delays which will result from layoffs due to budget cutting mandated by the infamous sequester exercise.  Last week an FAA spokesman told the Wall Street Journal that air-traffic controller furloughs are unavoidable under mandatory federal budget cuts, and the FAA predicts flights could be delayed by up to 90 minutes at busy airports as a result.”  Yikes!  Does that mean travelers are relegated to a summer of missed connections and hours upon hours of heel-cooling in lengthy airport security lines and crowded gate areas?

At FlightView we make a business of tracking commercial airline flights around the world.  We monitor delays at the top 179 airports in North America that service commercial flights; our homepage shows the major airports and the delays, if any, they are experiencing in real time.  Visitors can check the status of any flight yesterday, today or tomorrow.  We keep all the historical data, too, so we can look back at delays experienced by airports or specific flights.  So we’ll have a pretty good handle on how delays evolve this summer.  And if those threatened 90-minute delays happen (or even connection-breaking 30 minute delays), we will be the first to know.
