Real Time Airport Delays via RSS and/or E-Mail (#11 in the ResourceShelf Real-Time Series)

A few weeks ago we posted in our real-time info series about FlightStats.com, one of several services that offers real-time airplane tracking. We really like the service and we're also big fans of Flightaware.com. It's all about the right tool at the right time.

One of the other features that FlightStats offers is airport delay data direct from the FAA.

The FAA real time airport delay site is here and also offers airport delay info via the web or email. Using the email service you can specify which airports you would like info about. They also have a plain text site that works well with mobile browsers.

Flightstats takes all of the delay info and has created a real-time RSS feed. Direct to the feed itself using this URL.

Flightstats also offers all sorts of other gadgets and widgets for Google and Live.com
+ Flight Status
+ On-Time Performance
+ Simple HTML Form
+ All-In-One Widget
+ Google Toolbar Button
+ Google Coop

Finally, when it comes to airport delays, Ask.com has a Smart Answer with this info and airport weather. Simply enter flight delays or city name/airport name flight delays and info and related links appear at the top of the page. You'll also find a direct link to another flight tracking service. In some cases you can also use the airport code (LGA for LaGuardia or MCI for Kansas City) and trigger the info. In many cases you'll also find a direct link to the FAA database we mentioned earlier. Btw, this service works for some international airports too!
