Scheduled Same As Flight Plan Filed?

When the tracking states, “Scheduled,” is that the same as “Flight Plan Filed?” Since I leave in less than 3 hours, I would think that the flight plan would have been filed by now. If it is, then I wonder why I never received an alert?

Flightplans are typically sent to us about 2 hours before departure. I don’t think the status changes, but the aircraft type will change from italics (estimated) to normal text when the flightplan comes in with the equipment type.

Thank you for the quick response.

Well, that explains no alerts. : :laughing: Yeah, has this particular flight with a Boeing 737-800. The estimate equipment type on Flightaware is 737-700. Currently, the equipment type at Flightaware is still in italics.
