Flight Status Challenge
The question is: Could weather be a factor that could delay the plane before it even gets to Chicago?
It's one thing to know your flight number, it's another thing to figure out where that plane has been or where it's going after you de-plane. My son-in-law used this information last week to avoid a delay that seemed inevitable: his plane was coming in from Albany, NY. New York was about to be hammered by winter weather. He managed to reschedule his flight for a day earlier and avoided the delays.
Challenge: If you know your flight number, how can you find information about all the legs of that flight (the cities where it stops)? Where would you search? What keywords would you use?
