Here's the thing: Every commercial jet you've ever flown on had a flight before it, and every plane in commercial service has a schedule, often with three to five flights per day.
Why is your 7 p.m. flight to San Francisco out of Newark delayed even when the weather seems fine in both cities? Probably because something delayed the aircraft scheduled for your route at some point earlier in the day.
Knowing where your plane is coming from (including its current location) should help you better understand the status of the delay.
Earlier this year, my friends had plans to fly to San Francisco (SFO) from Newark (EWR) on Alaska Airlines.
They weren't particularly familiar with Alaska or their route network, but had booked a cheap cash fare a few months in advance. These friends consider themselves casual travelers who, despite my pleas, don't always take advantage of the wealth of information we have here at TPG to make those trips easier.
