Old delayed flight info


I have been advised that I can use flightstats.com to find out times etc of an old delayed flight from last year but don't have a clue how to find it on the website. Can anyone help?

You need to sign up for a (free) account. Once you have that and are signed in, go to the "Flights" or "Flight Status" options, and select your search criteria (flight number, route or airport) and the date in question.

FS is generally good, but does get stuck sometimes, notably when a flight deviates from its course, either diverted, or pushes back from the gate but never takes off.

Has your friend got her boarding passes from the flight? This will have flight details on - and it will also count as proof that they were on the flight.

I think she has some kind of booking confirmation from her travel agent. I think she wants the time of arrival following the delay as she can't remember what time it landed, she knows they were delayed over 12 hours but not 100% sure of the exact time

If you keep clicking the pevious month botton you should be able to go back as far as you like. If you enter the date make sure it's the correct format. That said, if she knows she was delayed for 12 hours the exact arrival time isn't going to matter much.
