A flight alert is a rule that you set up to tell FlightStats to monitor a specific flight for you. FlightStats will then notify you via email or text messages about changes with the status of the flight. This feature is available to users with a paid subscription.
A flight alert rule consists of:
* The flight you want to monitor
* The type of alerts you are interested in
* Where you would like to be notified
* An optional description that describes the rule
