Flight delays are a massive problem – they cost airlines and passengers $60B+ every year, two-thirds of travelers list delays as the most frustrating part of travel, and a 6% annual growth in air travel is driving increasing congestion – and yet... delays remain as opaque and unpredictable as ever.
We believe that accurate and easily-accessible flight delay forecasts could fundamentally transform how we experience and manage flight disruptions.
Our goal is to ensure that the entire travel ecosystem—from airlines to passengers to travel agents anywhere in the world—have the best information at their fingertips to help proactively manage disruptions and make travel more efficient and stress-free.

Zero BS We don't make claims we can't back up with data or other evidence, we don't sell our customers products and features we can't deliver on, we don't make grandiose claims to our investors, and we aren't afraid to call out BS. We make the accuracy of our predictions available to our customers and partners, and offer free trials for all our products. Life is simpler when customers, employees, partners, and investors can take us at face value.
Empathy Empathy is the ability to look at things from someone else's point of view. Being able to put ourselves in our customers' shoes helps build better products, empathy with colleagues helps build stronger teams, and being able to see a business partner's point of view helps build mutually beneficial relationships.
