Been using the app for a couple of years and best is understanding exactly where the inbound flt is - big difference in “departed” vs. taxiing and on the ground at the inbound location ....

The app works really well!
Sunreayz Airport Transportation 5/5
I love it because I can track all my friends and customers flights all in one spot!! Very useful in the business of picking people up at the airport !!! We love it!!
Accurate with flight times 4/5
Good app and overall very accurate. For someone who works at an airport, this is a very useful tool. Sometimes can take awhile to update flight changes, such as delays, but may be an airline/airport issue not so much an app issue. Overall very useful app for frequently travels and airport workers.
Works very well 5/5
By Susan Esq
Get flight time changes as they are in flight. My husband uses it in his black car business in and out of the airport. He gets real time updates and text alerts. Very helpful.
Where you at 5/5
Best part of this app is telling where a plane is. Especially helpful for dealing with possible delays.
Doesn’t find all the flights 1/5
Has a hard time with some flights. Just got an error “flight information not found”
Stop with the fancy stuff, people just want to know where the flight is and when it will land. This is kind of hard to do when flight information is not found
OK so far. 4/5
Used only once as of now. Very helpful to coordinate picking arriving passengers, especially at very busy airports.
Ipad version upgrade is awful. Go back to what you had before.! 2/5
See above - iupdate is awful
Best flight tracking app I ever had 5/5
I’m leaving in four days and it tells me where the plane is in real time. Anyone looking for a perfect flight tracking app this is the app.
Love this app!!!! 5/5
Thank you so much for producing this app! My son travels, and I was able to follow him everywhere he went recently. From a Mom, this is a big thank you!
The good and the not so good 5/5
By 31 Flyer
We us it mostly for our family members to track our personal plane. It’s a good app that needs more work. It sometimes works when we file Flight following, maybe we are doing something wrong? It always works when we file an IFR flight plan. The problem we have with the app is when we cancel IFR in the air if we do a visual approach the app stops tracking the flight and my loved ones wonder it we crashed cause it stops the tracking short of the landing. The other thing is that we can’t sneak away without the family being notified of when we are leaving and where we going. The great thing is my FBO uses the app to know when we’re are arriving at the airport so they can have my vehicle out on the tarmac running and waiting for us with the air or the heat running....love that use of your app! Keep up the great work.
Incorrect information 2/5
Delayed by 30 min but shown as taxiing when actually sitting on taxiway parked with engines running
WOOOOOOW AMAZING. GREAT 5/5
THIS APP AND COMPANY IS AWESOME. THE CUSTOMER SUPPORT TEAM DESERVES A RAISE FOR THE AMAIXNG WORK THEY DO%😄
Good app 5/5
App is great for tracking Family on trip, easy to use, very precise and informative. Professional, in ever way.
No encuentra los vuelos! 1/5
Malo Malo Malo!
No encuentra los vuelos!
No more waiting! 5/5
So nice to know when a flight arrives. One less thing to be confused about at the airport!
Just What I was looking for. 5/5
I use the app for plane spotting. I’m very satisfied with the performance so far. No complaints.
Doesn’t work very well for flights that turn back for maintenance 3/5
Our flight (alaska 646) from Seattle to Phoenix today lost its weather radar mid-flight. We got as far as northern Nevada and returned to Seattle. Flight Aware showed the flight departing from Seattle and arriving at Seattle. It didn’t show our flight departing later that evening from Seattle to Phoenix nor any of the gate change information.
Real easy to use! 5/5
Find the app very intuitive and easy to use. As a pilot myself, I like that it is fairly detailed as well
Amazing and accurate. 5/5
By Alexa Hooms
Every time I’m going to travel I use this app because it’s more accurate than most official sites, it had actually saved me once that the flight got cancelled and the app notified me several hours prior the United Airlines site. It's amazing and accurate. I’ll recommend it to everyone.
This app is GREAT! 5/5
This app is great! You can get the status of any flight on any airline. It even shows you where the plane is when it’s en route.
I like that this app is pretty user friendly. Keeping track of loved ones flights is easily accessible.
Missing Terminal Info in latest update 2/5
JFK as an example. Flight info shows scheduled departure gate but no mention of which Terminal. Um this is a pretty important piece of info to not have. If you have a connection, not having Terminal info makes the app near-useless.
Version 126.96.36.1995 June 2019.
Limited flight entry options 1/5
Doesn’t seem to allow setting up flights for future dates. This is important for anyone who has a lot of things going on. Important to be able to enter a flight when you have the information. It seems like there is a bug in storing the flight number. Would have to test when I can use this app. I think it has potential.
By Mohammed Moroccan
I set up notifications for certain flights but I don’t receive any. Any help please?
Had the updated flight information long before the gate agent announced anything, every time!
Great for connecting flight 5/5
Way to know where your next flight plane is
Doesn’t allow tracking by operator 3/5
App works good however on the app you can not track by operator like you can on the full web version. For this reason I give it 3. I primarily use it for that purpose.
Good thing it’s free! 2/5
Pretty vanilla at best. Used to show owners but that stopped.
Can’t trust ETAs 2/5
This app gets a lot right. The ability to set alerts for flights you’re meeting is a great concept that is well-implemented in parts. However, that feature set breaks down at the most critical stage— the arrival time. I have received alerts that a flight is in the air after a delay. In my Notifications Center, a revised ETA is provided. However, in the app, that new arrival info is not updated. Why isn’t it synced across both locations so that I can rely only on the app? Other times no revised notifications are received. I’ll be at the airport at the appointed time. Just as I’m expecting the app to show “Landed,” it updates and pushes the arrival time out by 30 minutes or more. If a tracker app is that unreliable, it becomes worthless.
Update: Based on developer's response re update to app, I'm happy to try the latest release. Thanks for the patch.
Continuously getting worse...
Awesome App 5/5
I’ve been using this app for a number of years. Always up to date. Never an issue to find the information looking for.
Worked great for me 5/5
Recently tracked a flight and had no problems. Very pleased.
Glitch with latest release 2/5
By pjb VA
The Route Search function doesn’t work with this release (5.6.14) on my iPad running iOS 12.3.1. After entering a departure and destination airport nothing happens. Older versions would immediately display flights between the two cities. Please fix it!
Latest Update Lost Terminal Info 1/5
By CEO of FlightAware
What good is a gate number if you have no clue which terminal the gate is in!
Best airplane status app. 5/5
By TV law
For infrequent users, this app is intuitive and informative. Saves hours of needless airport waiting and reduces the anxiety of not knowing what’s happening.
Type of aircraft 3/5
When searching for a specific route (example LAX JFK), the flights show up with all the airlines. But the type of plane doesn’t show up anymore. Just the airline, flight number, and times. Please fix this
Knowing where loved ones are 5/5
This app brings me comfort to follow my loved ones when they travel, especially overseas. Super easy - you just enter the flight number and airline. I haven’t tried notifications yet.
LOVE APP 5/5
My daughter fly’s a lot traveling overseas and this lessens the stress of my wife and myself worrying if she made her flights.
Too much clutter 1/5
By Won't try agaon
WFT, added so much clutter screen is unreadable. Need to create an account to change most settings, why?
Parents’ Relief! 4/5
Love this app. Nice to track flight info in real time & know your loved one has landed or departed safely. But especially a relief if you have young adults traveling to distant locations in foreign lands- and need to be in airplane mode to avoid mega phone bills. Provides peace of mind. Would give 5 stars, but some info on website not present in app- would be great if app & site were identical.
Very helpful app, and cool for scouting big planes 5/5
I use it all of the time to look at big planes flying over me, it shows speed and elevation and is very useful to see many different kinds of planes and airlines.😃😃😃😃😃😃😃😃😃😃😃😃😃😃😃😃😃😃😃😃😃😃
I love this app. Works great - tons of features.
Good app 5/5
I take a lot of private rides to and from the airport which is about an hour away. I usually know the flight number so I can see when they leave their destination and have a pretty good idea when they will be at the front door with their luggage
I’m back. 5/5
By Peg Leg Jim
I used Flight Aware on my last phone, but had an awful lot of issues resulting from my slow connectivity.
I suspected as much but sadly had to delete it.
With a new(er) iPhone and same sloooow WiFi, it seems that all my old frustrations have been addressed. I’m very happy to read the reviews of those that had the same issues, but were now happy.
Furthermore, the timely, professional response from the developers was a breath of fresh air!
I’ve worked in costumer service for almost 5 decades. I’m too many situations/businesses, “Customer Service” died in the ‘90’s. It’s nice to see some developers with old time replies & courtesies.
I’m going to run it for a while before upgrading, but it looks like that’ll be a pretty good bet.
avoid until new update fixes bug 1/5
updated on June 1. with this update, if your phone goes to sleep while using the app , when you log back in you are greeted with a message stating “it appears you are not connected to the internet.”. The error is unrecoverable, and you must switch the phone off and on. AVOID UNTIL NEW VERSION IS OUT.
Very Impressive 5/5
Everything is near real-time. I have been alerted to departing gate changes BEFORE announcements or the airline app. I am able to judge when to leave home to meet arrivals at the airport before and sometimes more accurately than the airline app. Once, I was able to watch my wife’s arriving plane diverted upon approach well before announcements or notifications. It’s like you know what the captain knows when the captain knows it. Keep in mind, this is all about the aircraft/flight so use it in conjunction with the business of the airline app.
Not updating flights 2/5
By Nellie Singer
Loaded app update and it is no long updating the flight I am tracking. It still shows plane as scheduled even though it is in the air.
