To add flight alerts, use the My Flight Alerts application. Please log in to FlightStats.com, then choose My FlightStats | My Alerts. To setup an alert you'll simply need to enter the airline, flight number, and date. Press the 'Go' button to proceed setting up your alert.
When you add a flight alert, you can choose the flight, and you set whether you wish to monitor departures, arrivals, or both. If you choose both, then you get notices for the following:
- Status confirmation up to 3 hours prior to departure
- Notification if the flight is delayed by more than 30 minutes
- Notification if the flight is cancelled or diverted
- Arrival notification when the flight lands
