Its not actually called the "id" number ( I cant remember what the real name is, but ill get it). Anyway, there are a number ways to get it. There are some online resources (which I will get). Also the csr individual on the phone can access it. What I do is this:
Call airline csr and ask: What is the id number (remember its not called id number) of flight 123 from Boston to Atlanta.
Csr: its N34J6.
Me: where is the plane right now?
csr: it's currently in Katmandu.

Then you can follow up with est arrival/departure times, etc. The problem is that the airline computer systems will still show that the fight is "ontime" beacuse it hasnt been changed. And they arent changed until some gets around to doing it.
