Flight Updates by Text

AA4295 gate change. Dept Gate at ORD now Gate G11 JEFFREY.

If you have the option to select text message notification for flight information you should ALWAYS avail yourself of the opportunity.

The above message came to me from Orbitz and I consistently find that these messages are 5 and sometimes 10 minutes ahead of the boards at the airport. Also, given that the reminder for the flight is 3 hours ahead of time, I have actually made a flight that I would have slept through otherwise.

There are things that frustrate me a lot about Orbitz but this aspect shows them at their best.

Now, I am going to wander over to my new gate before anybody else knows that it has been changed!
