How can I get early notification on flight delays?
The Web site FlightCaster says it can predict the likelihood of a flight arrival delay long before airlines themselves make such announcements. Using data on weather, a flight's prior inbound airplane's status, FAA updates, historical data and other information, the site can warn of delays up to six hours before airline alerts. Just enter your flight number at the site and get a free prediction. You can also get the information on iPhones or Blackberrys for a slight fee.
