Site Enhancements

The layout of statistics is rearranged. The country flags appear next to airports, and the # of flights list and flight miles list per airline are side by side.

I'm trying to figure out this "Benchmark" thing.

Premium members can now rate their flights, airports and airlines. I'm not sure if this is beneficial to me or not.

i really like this tool/site. one thing that bugs me about entering flight info though is the separated screens for location/date/time info and flight number/airline/extra info. can't these be on one page ? is it perhaps an advertising imprints thing ?

great tool at any rate. can't complain too much about free stuff

Poster?

Can anyone comment on the quality? I was thinking of getting one for my ManCave as a conversation piece. I am only including travels from the last 10 years and these are vacations, non-wrk stuff only. However, most of my flights are US, Caribbean, and Mexico (one trans-Pac, one south america, and a few TATL), I was curious as to the quality of the North American Poster for discerning the airports in Mexico/Carribean.

I ask because the map on the website looks like a jarbled mess on the Mexico/Caribbean portions.

thanks

Can any decode three AA tail numbers.

I know that American often reports internal fleet numbers to the BTS. I have decoded many of the MD-80's but I can't figure these out. I think some might have been Boeing 727's. But I'm not sure.

N818AA
N2BUAA
N2BSAA

Any help would be appreciated.

I bought the big North American poster, and just looked at it again, and I suspect that you would be very happy with the detail in the Caribbean and elsewhere.

great....what size do you recommend? I was thinking of the $96 one, not the largest one.

Also, does the N. American poster include central america or does it stop around the mexico/guatemala border?

I bought the largest possible size. To give you an idea of the level of detail, the distance on the map between SJU and STT is about 1 centimeter.

The southernmost airport is SJO, and it has all of Alaska (even Barrow) and Hawaii as well as BDA.

Any advise on how to enter a diverted flight? I was on a DL flight to ATL last night that got diverted to BHM due to weather/lack of fuel. We weren't let out of the airplane. Nor did we officially pull into a gate. We sort of just sat in the corner for 2 hours waiting. Does this count as a visit to BHM? I don't suppose DL is going to give me any extra miles, but we did watch the safety video twice.

Seriously though, any thoughts? The normally 1:29 flight took nearly 6 hours of my life so I would really like to document something. Thanks.

UA used to offer that route for sale.

It didn't involve a big rubberband and hang gliders, did it?

I had a diversion to ABQ a couple of months ago on an ATL-LAS flight that I entered as ATL-ABQ and ABQ-LAS. We did officially pull into a gate (hooked up the jetway, etc.) which was how the paramedics entered the plane to get the sick F/A off the plane, but we were not allowed off the plane.

F/As did a quickie version of the safety demo (since, at least at the time, all the ex-TWA 757s were doing manual demonstrations).

It was like some "direct" flights that I've been on that I did not bother getting off the plane and counted those, so I figured this would count as well.

You can search FAA N-Numbers here.

Using this tool, the first one comes back to a Dassault Falcon - not an AA plane.

The last two are not valid N-numbers. You can see the criteria here, but in short, as you can have a maximum of two alpha characters at the end of the N-number, the last two clearly are invalid.

Did these come from the side of actual AA planes? If so, my guess is there's a transcription error somewhere.

Also, I assume you know that AA doesn't fly any 727's anymore.
