Flight Status

Flight Status deals with questions such as:

  • Is my flight on time?
  • How long is the delay?
  • Is it cancelled?
  • What is my departure or arrival gate and terminal?
  • What type of plane is used on this flight?

Flight Track

Flight Track consists of positional information and updates needed to create flight tracking applications and answers questions such as:

  • What is the planned flight path for this flight?
  • Where is it now?
  • Where has it been up to now?
