Don't See On Delta Website Where To Find Where Aircraft Is Coming From

Am I just missing an obvious link? I don't find on the Delta website the ability to find out where an aircraft is coming from. Want to get the info on what aircraft will be on the way to BOS and will be flight #3560 to JAX. Right now it is delayed by 2 hours.

I'd call but I assume there will be ridiculous waits since DL seems to be in the middle of a mini LGA meltdown this afternoon.

Thanks.

It's SkyWest 3826 from BNA. You can find this info from Flightaware https://flightaware.com/live/flight/DAL3560. See "Where is my plane now" link towards top left.

Also, this info is sometimes available on the DL app (but not available on website for some reason).

Thanks flyerwma. It doesn't look like 3560 will actually be departing BOS at 5:50 if 3826 won't be arriving until 5:45...

DL doesn't show it on the site, but it does show so in the app (though sometimes inaccurately).

Regarding "this info is sometimes available on the DL app", the pattern I've seen is that DL operated flights are shown, but DL Connection flights are not.

For me, it's a two step process to track the aircraft that's supposed to fly on a DL leg:

1. Go to http://www.flightstats.com within 24 hours of when the flight is supposed to depart. Punch in the flight number, including the "DL" code at the beginning (e.g. DL3560.) Click on the flight when it comes up, and then click "View Flight Details." Toward the bottom of the flight details, you'll see the tail number of the flight (it should start with an N, have at least 3 digits, and then have other digits and/or letters, for example N16065 or N904DN.)

2. Go to http://www.flightaware.com. Punch in the tail number from step 1. It'll show you all the flights that plane is scheduled to fly.

So in your case, here's your plane:

Or you could use FlightRadar24 and get all the information in one single place.

Step 1 is unnecessary. Put the flight number into Flight Aware, then click Track Inbound Plane. Done

Pilot said that there was a mechanical with the aircraft originally scheduled for BOS-JAX and that they switched aircraft, waiting for the plane to come in from Nashville. And that was the reason for the 3 hour delay on the flight yesterday.
