LiteSabre Delay Minder
How would you like to get a text when there is a delay in your schedule? How about when you get a gate change? Would you like to know when they change equipment on you? Or even more?
Now there's Delay Minder. LiteSabre's Delay Minder was designed specifically for the AA pilot, and will give you information that no other flight monitoring service can provide. With Delay Minder you know exactly what's happening with your flight, and you get just the information you need, when you need it.
There are quite a few commercial flight monitoring applications out there, but none of them was built specifically for the American Airlines pilot. They give you flight delay information, and gate changes, but do they tell you there was an equipment change, or that your flight has a 'decision' placed on it? None of those services will text you when you've been reassigned, or that the inbound is arriving after you are scheduled to depart. Will they tell you the EDCT? I don't think so.
With LiteSabre's Delay Minder you get all that information sent to you by text or email (your choice). You can even choose to route your texts to email during the hours you want to sleep.
LiteSabre Delay Minder gives you the following information:
- Departure time changes.
- Flight cancellations.
- Gate changes.
- Inbound aircraft arrival time conflict.
- Tail number changes.
- When your NS has a 'DCN'.
- Schedule changes.
- Rap adds and removals.
- When not reporting FIT within 20 minutes of departure.
- When anyone on your crew does not report FIT within 20 minutes of departure. (CAs only)
- When flying with a check airman.
- When the list of cities you are flying to on an HI3 changes.
- ATC delay information directly from the FAA, starting 2 hours before your departure.
Keep your privacy! Sure you can get a similiar service from AANotify, but do you really want to allow to company to put another leash on you? WIth Delay Minder you get all the information you need without being beholden to anyone.

Ok, you really want to know... so here goes.
Delay Minder looks at your HI5, HI3, and your next NS to determine delays. Once it determines the time of your next departure, it starts checking the data according to the following schedule:
- More than 24 hours ahead of your next departure time: every 6 hours.
- Between 24 hours and 7 hours: every 2 hours.
- Between 7 hours and 2 hours: every 30 minutes.
- Less than 2 hours: every 10 minutes.
Each time it checks your schedule, LiteSabre looks for and reports the following anomolies.
- A new instance of the symbol 'CXLD' on your sequence.
- A new instance of the symbol 'RA' on your sequence.
If it does not see a new CXLD or RA, it looks for and reports the following details if they change.
- Departure time changes, including the RSK and ACT lines on the sequence.
- Gate changes from the NS.**
- Tail number changes from the NS.**
- 'DCN' listed in the departure time line of the NS.**
- The time of the inbound aircraft, and alerts you if it arrives too close to your departure time for you to depart on time. (This interval is set by you in 'My Settings'.)**
- If the inbound arrival time is triggered above, it will also alert you when that time changes by more than the number of minutes you specify in 'My Settings'.*
**These parameters are only checked within 2.5 hours of departure.
In addition and independent of the above, LiteSabre will scan for any posted EDCT times, and report those whenever they appear and change, regardless of the above factors.
Important: LiteSabre should automatically sense when you get a trip on reserve, and update your schedule accordingly. This might take up to 30 minutes.
