Flight delays ahead
Kansas City, MO (PRWEB) April 24, 2013
As reported in the news this week, the FAA is forecasting flight delays nationwide for the foreseeable future because of their decision to lay off air traffic controllers due to budget cuts. This decision could make flying even more frustrating than normal for the millions that fly daily.
Captain Dan Stratman, Airport Life CEO, is passionate about making flying easier and less frustrating for airline passengers. His company created an air travel app that has all the features a passenger needs to help get through these trying times. The Airport Life® app is a must-have tool for passengers facing delays. The app is the only air travel app created by an actual airline pilot, and it shows.
One feature gives passengers instant access to the FAA Airport Flight Delay Map. This map provides real-time information on the delay status for airports around the country. The itinerary feature provides automatic notifications for any changes to your flight. The “Airport Wall” social networking feature allows passengers in airports to communicate with each other and exchange helpful information about what is going on. The app even has a complete list of food, services, and shopping options for 135 airports around the world in case you get delayed and have extra time on your hands. No other air travel app on the planet has the unique combination of helpful features that are in the Airport Life® app.
“If you plan on flying (or know someone who is) during these challenging times, do yourself a favor and get the only air travel app created by an actual airline Captain,” advises Captain Dan.
