Tracking United Airlines flights

Jump to last reply

My coworker was planning to fly SAN-EWR-BZE today. EWR-BZE for tomorrow morning is already cancelled and I am looking for alternatives.

United's website allows you to put in a flight number to check flight status. It shows the tail number for the plane and tells you where it is coming from. You can track it back from there to find out where that tail number is at now.

An award seat is available this afternoon for SAN-IAH. Overnight at IAH. Continue on to BZE tomorrow morning. This is all "on schedule" but I am trying to determine how the weather back east could affect it.

The plane for the 3:09 PM SAN-IAH flight is in the air, traveling BDL-ORD-SAN. I think that means that she can make it to Houston today.

Tomorrow, there are two IAH-BZE flights: 1407 and 1408.

The plane used for 1407 tomorrow is on schedule (2:40 PM from EWR) and will travel EWR-CLE-IAH.

The tail number for 1408 to BZE tomorrow is in the air now and will travel IAH-YYC-IAH-OKC-IAH-BZE.

The plane used for tomorrow's UA 1408, IAH-BZE, is not going be going anywhere near the weather back east, so it can follow its schedule. The other plane might leave EWR on time today and continue on to IAH.

But, I guess the crew for that flight isn't going to be on the same plane, so there might not be a crew (if they were coming from EWR on a different plane/flight, e.g.). I saw that one of the BZE flight numbers (not tail numbers) was coming from MSY to IAH, but I guess that the crew for 140x from MSY-IAH would not necessarily be the same crew for IAH-BZE.
