  1. I’m glad you posted this today. My wife and father-in-law were traveling this past week and almost purchased this app not just for their impending flights, but also for our future travel. I utilize FlightTrack Pro and the FlightBoard add-on is always tempting, just haven’t pulled the trigger yet.

    My worst airport-travel experience came in February 2008. My wife & I were attempting to get from Indianapolis, IN, to State College, PA, for an annual charity event. A winter storm hit the Mid-West and impacted our flights. We were almost to Indy before I got a notification that our original flight was canceled, despite checking often before we left for the airport (was about a 1.5 hr drive). The flight had been canceled just after we left but we didn’t get any kind of notice until we were basically there. FlightBoard (or Flight Track Pro) certainly would have come in handy then. Unfortunately hat wasn’t the end of our travel nightmare either, though I’m not sure FlightBoard could have helped us when the airlines overbooked…

  2. I’m so intrigued by the FlightBoard! I usually fly on planes, but the idea of turning my iPad into a mode of transportation is really intriguing! I sure hope I win so I can try flying around on it! ;)

  3. This would have come in handy on countless occasions. Most recently…got an alert that my flight was delayed two hours. Left home accordingly and when I got to the airport flight was leaving…delay was only an hour instead of the aforementioned two. Airline failed to text me update so missed flight. This app would have certainly helped me track delay updates.

  4. Nice promo deal.

    So for the past few years I’ve travelled from New York to Texas for the holidays; two of those trips were delayed for a day due to inclement weather. Of course, after driving an hour through the frigid weather to get to the airport each time I find out the flight was cancelled just shortly before I got there. The first time I didn’t have so much as a smartphone to guide me, and when I wised up and returned for round two, the flight status email notification I signed up for arrived in my inbox (on the way home) literally half an hour after I see the delay notice in the airport itself – talk about frustration. An app like FlightBoard would have saved me time, gas, warmth, and sanity.

  5. Would love this app….might even consider buying it if I don’t win. Hopefully won’t have to do that.

  6. I would love copy of this app.

    I was stuck in ORD last fall, and had to beg the gate agent to route me via another city. This app would have helped me fine the best alternatives.

  7. I was returning to New Hampshire from a business trip in San Diego last year and looked at my itinerary to see when my flight left. I read it to be 2:00pm. I got out of my business meeting at 11:00am so I stopped for lunch on the way to the airport. When I got there to check in for my 2:00pm flight they said my flight had left at 11:30am. I’d looked at my “connection” in Denver! They said there was no way for them to get me all the way home that day and I’d have to leave the next morning and get home around 5pm. Problem was, I had 60 people showing up at my house then next day around 3pm for a Chili Cookoff and my wife was NONE too happy I was going to be late. I ended up waiting in the airport for 8 hours for the red eye that got me home at 9am so I could help prepare for the party. :-/

    Had I had a copy of FlightBoard I would have known while I was “at” the business meeting when my flight was and that I didn’t have time to stop for lunch. I would have made my flight and kept my wife happy!

  8. I frequently travel to Las Vegas to play Texas Hold’em. I always rent a car and on my last day I play poker at the Palms. If I had this iPad App, I could play until the last minute, as flights are often delayed now. I am wasting valuable “seat” time seating at LAS instead of the Palms, chasing high hands! By the way, when I didn’t win the Saddleback iPad sleeve, i ordered one and it’s worth every cent. I’m saving up for the thin briefcase to take on my next trip from DFW-LAS.

  10. i would also love a copy of this app – not only is it incredibly useful (and i bring my ipad everywhere i travel these days), but it is also beautifully designed. the two key elements of an iPad app!

  11. Don’t have a bad experience, probably because I only have a two dozens of international flight experiences. But this app would be pretty useful when I visit my home country. :)

  12. Flightboard would have helped when a large snow storm threatened an Xmas vacation to hawaii. We did everything we could to avoid the storm by changing our routing and getting on earlier flights. Flightboard would’ve helped streamline all the information on our options. We ended up getting there… Eventually but it was very convoluted and stressful.

  13. My worst experience happened this Christmas while travelling home. Heathrow airport decided to to shut down and we were already checked in and our luggages were already on the plane stuck in the snow. We waited 9 hours during the night to get the bags back with no luck. Apparently half a million people were stuck in London for days.

    But it was also the night I realized again what a lifesaver the iPad is. The minute the cancellations were announced I grabbed my ipad and started rebooking my flight. I successfully rebooked one for me and for my girlfriend, but when I was booking the third time for my friend (2 min later) there were only seats for the next plane. So quickly I helped as many people as I could, but by the time I got to the 8th person, there were only seats available 5 days after mine! They couldn’t even go home for Christmas and all this happened within 10 minutes. I needless to say I was the fastest with my iPad beating everyone with a laptop and the smaller touchscreen iPhones. I’m so happy I have an iPad.
    I would definitely love to get the FlightBoard app.

  14. App looks very useful, so here goes :)

    How about trying to take my twelve south compass ipad stand through with me in my carry on luggage, through a 3 flight journey and being searched on every single security check point. As they said it looked like a large knife. Love the stand, but bet they didn’t think about that little design feature :)

  15. I was visiting Anchorage in 2009 and on the day of my flight back home a Volcano erupted. The airspace was closed, reopened, then another eruption, and so on… I ended up leaving 3 days later. If I had FlightBoard then, it would have saved me tons of searches for information on the Internet.

  16. This looks GREAT! I am a world traveler, having lived in DC, NYC, HK, and Singapore over the last few years alone and this app would save me so much time. One time that it would have been useful would have been when I was living in DC during the 2010 Snowmageddon… My in-laws came to visit my husband and I’s 1-bedroom vice apartment and I was 8+ months pregnant. Their flights were cancelled at least 4 different times on different days including one day when they went to the airport just in the hope that something would turn up… What was supposed to be a 3 day weekend visit turned into a weeklong imprisonment with the snow completely limiting where we could go and our confusions over airline schedules making it impossible to relax bout when we’d all have our so space again… My relationship with my in laws took about 6 months to recover from that trip… If we’d had this app we probably could have at least felt in control of what we knew about the situation!
