Can you tell me more about the Historical Flight Status feature on FlightStats.com?

Historical Flight Status allows you to look up and see details for a flight that happened in the past. To use the tool, login and select Historical Flight Status from the Flights Menu. Information is available all the way back to 2006. This simplest way to use the application is to enter your airline and flight number, pick a departure date, and hit search.

If your flight has multiple stops on that day, you will see a screen that asks you to pick the segment you are interested in. Once you pick a segment, the screen will update to show you everything we know about that flight on that day (for example: gate and runway times, any delays, and the final status).

If the flight involves other segments, we will show upline and downline segments so you can see if the delay was a result of problems earlier in the day. If you are interested in seeing more details about another segment, simply click the segment and the screen will update for that particular flight.

Farther down the page we show codeshare relationships, as well as an event timeline showing all the information we acquired through our sources and when that information was received. One use for the timeline is seeing how a delay may have grown throughout the day.

If you do not know your flight number, you can find your flights by either departure or arrival airport, or by route. You can also filter to a particular carrier if you so desire.

For example to see all flights departing on June 1st, 2015 from ORD and arriving at DFW, simply select ORD as the departure airport and DFW as the arrival airport. A flight listing will then appear. Pick the flight you are interested in and you will be taken to the results page.

Historical Flight Status is currently only available to customers who a Professional subscription. As part of the professional subscription, you can look up 250 historical flights per month. Additional lookups can be purchased if you need more. Airport and route searches do not count towards that limit.
