The arrival data for AA254 (OGG-LAX) is incorrect. At least it is for 8/24/07. I’ve been watching this data for a few weeks to see the likelihood of arriving early. The flight is due into LAX around 10:35. I was on the flight last night and it arrived at 10:22, not making it to the gate until nearly 10:50. Yet FlightAware indicates the flight arrived at 9:54pm. At 9:54pm, we were still over the Pacific, just off the coast of Santa Barbara.
How is this data fed? I can only assume that the data in previous weeks is incorrect too. Here I was thinking I’m on the only flight to arrive this late in weeks - what bad luck! When in fact, the times posted on FA are just wrong.
Just thought somebody should know.
