Sure, I’ll pick you up at the airport…
3 hours into a Law and Order marathon my phone buzzes. Who’s texting me? Yikes!

FlightStats.comhas a ton of information regarding flights, airlines, and airports. All good stuff, but it’s the ability to receive flight alerts that is extremely helpful. You can set alerts to be notified if there is a delay or change in the departure status and you can set alerts for arrivals including in-flight delays and landing notices. You can have the alert sent to your phone as a text message or to your email account. Note: You do have to register, but all they ask for is an email address.

The one feature I wish they would add is the ability to receive the text alert X minutes before arrival so I’m not 10 minutes late when my friend flies without checked baggage.
