FlightStats has information going back several years. Their level of coverage is generally excellent, although it can vary a little depending on the airline/location.

Unlike the others, however, FlightAware offers a unique URL for each flight, including future flights, that can be bookmarked or distributed in emails or other messages. ...

There's a service called Flightradar24, and they have this to say in the description: In addition to ADS-B data, we also get data from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) in the United States. This data is based on radar data and includes all commercial air traffic in US and Canadian air space (i.e. not just planes with ADS-B transponders). Unlike ...

I have this iPad App that lets you monitor live flights feed. One of the great features is that you point your iPad to a contrail and it tells you the details of that specific flight.

I believe you're probably interested in something like Flightradar24.com - you enter the flight in, and you can see exactly where it is, altitude, speed etc. I've used it on a regular basis for when relatives or friends are flying in to my city.

FlightView.com has great reports on historic flights (I work in sales there). They're the only flight data provider which are selected as consultants to the FAA, so you know you're getting the most accurate data.

The flight tracker websites actually have an incentive to not be exactly correct, and they argue that this is for security. The cynical mind would suggest it just gives them a bit of a cost saving when it comes to information polling, updates etc. Generally they will be within five minutes or so and reasonably accurate on flight paths (around here they ...

Via the NYTimes I found that TripIt can serve as an itinerary repository that can be shared. People can then use this repository to check flight status. With the map tab, my itinerary should be able to make magic-lines on a map as my trip progresses.

It seems you want to build or use specifically a web app. Still, the recently updated Kayak app for iOS allows you to track flights, as does the even more recently updated Flight+, which has a rather gorgeous interface.

Most frequent flights from Reykjavik are to London and Copenhagen. Some possibilities for an overnight stay other than London or Copenhagen are Paris, Amsterdam, Oslo or Stockholm. You can see a list of airlines that fly to Reykjavik on this page: http://www.kefairport.is/English/Service/Airlines/ Link to the website of the KEF airport: ...

flightstats.com can show upcoming flights by airport. The TNR website is actually showing an iframe from flightstats.com. This also means you can't trust this data 100%, since my canceled flight is still indicated as Scheduled on there, although I suspect that the reliability of the data is a bit higher in developed countries.

As this is not so long ago, you can look it up on flightaware: AF0422 For your flight that would mean that is was scheduled at 10:40 but left at 11:07. Are you sure it was the 4th and not the 5th? Because it arrived late by 6 hours on the 5th (you can see that from the table)
