To the FlightAware team,
I love the enhancements that were rolled out today. This strengthens FlightAware’s position as the best flight tracker (and my favorite site!) on the net. I especially love the ability to see where a aircraft is coming from as well as OUT / OFF / ON / IN times.
Would it be possible to include the “track inbound flight” link for ALL flights, not just flights that haven’t departed? I realize the info is no longer relevant to most users after a flight leaves, but for an enthusiast, it can be fun to see an aircraft’s line of flying throughout the day. I assume you have this data, so it would seem to me easy to make it accessible even after a flight has departed.
Replace the two “Departure” and “Arrival” lines on the main flight tracker screen with four rows for OUT / OFF / ON / IN. This information is so critical and valuable to someone tracking a flight that it seems too obscured right now behind the “Scheduled” / “Estimated” links.
Just some suggestions from a big fan. Also, I noticed that some capability to see tail numbers for some commercial flights is coming – very exciting!
Thanks for all your hard work.
