    Some of you guys seem to have more faith in FR24 info than I'll ever have. I would not rely on FR24 data to either meet or catch any plane, to or from anywhere unless I had been tracking the aircraft over time during the flight. If you know a bit about the target flight, looking at it's actual track on the map is pretty reliable and it is easy to see if there is a two hour error (even a half hour error in a lot of cases) by where it is at a particular point in time.

    Stuffed if I know how you got the impression that I have faith in FR24's tracking?????? My post was to indicate the sort of inaccuracies that exist.

    I do look at aircraft location etc and estimate myself typical arrival time plus the vagaries of immigration formalities and baggage retrieval.
    The point of the original post was that FR24 data is not reliable, at least for some flights.

    It seems that their opposition are doing rather better on some flights. See the attached captures:
