Where to check flight on time record

Hello,

Where can I check the on time record for flights? I tried the search function but I am not having any luck.

We are leaving St. Louis 10/10 at 11:05 am on AA flight #4722 that should get into JFK at 2:40 pm. We then leave on Maxjet at 8:15 pm.

I think I have allowed enough time for connections but now am getting a bit worried.

Should we consider getting flight insurance and if so where from?

Thanks for any help.

Sandy

I can't help you with the web-sites (you can do a google search) but you have 5 1/2 hours between flights - that's more then enough time to make your connection at JFK.

Keep in mind that "on time" records, like any statistics don't mean too much when applying the data to a specific flight in the future. For example, if one flight arrives "on-time" and one flight arrives an hour late all you really know is 50% of those flights weree delayed and the average delay was 30 minutes.

Regardless of the statistics with 5 1/2 hours between flights you have plenty of time. Even if your inbound flight is 2 hours late (a rarity) you still have 3 1/2 hours before your next flight - bring a good book as you'll have plenty of airport time at JFK.

Some websites you can use:

flightstats.com have on-time record for last 2 months.

The government have data up to July 2007:

Or to glance through take off and landing time of a specific flight on many days:

Here's data for your flight on flightaware:

flightaware.com/live/flight/EGF722/history

It's a flight operated by American Eagle. On various databases, if you can't find 4722, try 722.

RoamsAround: Good insight and helpful to hear.

rkkwan: Thanks for the websites and for taking the time to go the extra step and list the flight I am worrying about.

I know the risk of booking on two different airlines and thus the concern if we wouldn't make our MaxJet flight.
