Doesn’t it just drive you nuts when you show up early for your flight and it’s delayed — especially those early morning flights?  It irks me even more to know that I could have had a couple more hours sleep if the airline just had the courtesy to notify me if it was obvious there was going to be a delay (they have all of our contact info).  I know most of the time when the delays keep getting longer, it’s not the gate agent’s fault and shockingly, I usually get updated departure info before they do since I sign up to the airline’s flight paging service.  However, before I leave the house, I now go to FlightCaster.com (their iPhone and Blackberry apps are free).

FlightCaster predicts flight delays by using a proprietary advanced algorithm that scours data on every domestic flight for the past 10 years and matches it to real-time conditions.  They help travelers determine if they should change itineraries, notify colleagues or alter their plans before anyone else.  The service is free if you log on to the web – remember it works best six hours or less prior to your domestic departure.
