Flight AC 34 has not moved in a while

flight AC 34 has been doing the same thing for about 30min now…
How come does it keep going back and forth on the same spot??

Just a guess here. The flight has been outside of radar coverage for a while, notice the “estimated” note. Flight aware runs estimated positions in this case. ATC does receive position reports periodically and updates the rest of us which means what you see may jump around a bit. It looks kind of strange but those of us who use flight aware consistently get used to it.
