Is it me or is it getting a little harder to get the info ?

Airport websites seem to not have the info till 30 mins before landing and many of the other sites are now offering limited info unless you pay for the full version

Flight stats still seems to be free

I suspect that before long flight info will be something else we'll all have to pay for

What do you expect this is the world of technology which is a money spinner for the providers.

Try flight radar 24 you can check if your flight has left the departing airport.

I love Flight Stats.

But they don't list Tui flights. :-k

But Gatwick and Heathrow's sites seem ok.

When I can't get any sense out of flight stats or the airport sites I give the departing airport's site a go.

Once you get it in English you have half a chance. :roll: :roll: :roll:

The East Midlands one was shocking, it would have it as landing in 30 minutes but the passengers were getting their luggage. Apparently, their flight info is hosted in Manchester.
