The Best Way to Get the Status of Your Flight

SmarterTravel

Flight delays are bad enough as it is. But if you’re not clued in to your itinerary’s most recent changes, you could be in for an interminable wait at the airport. The solution: Sign up for flight-status alerts from your airline, which will notify you as soon as there are any adjustments to your flight schedule. This will come in handy when multitudes of flight delays have crippled airline websites and customer-service call lines. If you keep getting the busy signal, you can log onto your email or check your mobile app for updates on the status of your flight.

Not all airlines offer automatic flight alerts, but most of the major ones do. Below are lists of international and domestic carriers that offer flight-status alerts via email and mobile apps.
