Which digital flight logbook to use?Back to Forum
Tagged: Digital flight logbook
A fair level of procrastination lately helped me looking at these various services, excepted https://www.jetlovers.com/ that is based on social networks, which I don’t want for all sort of reasons. So…
https://openflights.org/: A basic service. Mains advantage: importing! while it didn’t work from Flightmemory, very unfortunately, I could do it from TripIt with limited success (basic data only; travel class wrong).So I’ll delete it as soon I have no more hope with the Flightmemory import.
https://www.flightmemory.com/ is still excellent, but a bit outdated. I guess the founders just continue to milk the cow. Only pdf exports available. And inputing is as basic as with OpenFlight, i.e. the only item that comes automatically is the airline once the flight number is entered. It has though a “Journey” feature that allows the regrouping of some flights, which is nice. Cost: USD 55 for 2 years (1 year possible).
https://my.flightradar24.com/ is by far the best. By entering a date and flight number, the system does the rest (i.e. aircraft type and ID, route, times, …). Tripit and .csv importing is available, while .csv exporting is also possible. And, for now at least, it is free…7 Oct 2018
swissdiver I was actually thinking about posting here as our little one turned 3 last week completing flight 60 DXB-LHR & 61 LHR-GVA on his birthday. In the end we used myflightrader24 and I have to say it’s brilliant albeit i’d Like to add photos from the flights which I can’t seem to do. We also use the sky flyers book for all BA flights as that’s the main airline. The book is more for his memory box as I’m sure they won’t be available for much longer.
We’ve gone from flying a mixture of First/Business while he was under 2 (due to the low cost of an under 2] to flying in economy due to 3 (almost) full fares and not being able to justify that 3rd business seat for a +2 year old. Both parents being Gold with BA helps with the seat selection and we’ve purposely booked the A380 & more recently A350 with BA to ensure some good seat sets for travelling as a 4 (with granny) on A380 top deck/rear cabin (70AB & 71AB) and as a 3 on the A350 (31ABC). Interesting it seems that still with a high CIV when travelling with a child the chance of an upgrade, even to WTP+ is slim. We’ve received just 1 w to WTP+ on DME-LHR in the summer.
I’ve attached a visual of how his flight log looks up until last week. Makes me think I should have done this for myself a few years back 🙂
