From the JetBlue website: "Please note the actual estimated departure time may not be the actual time that the flight will be leaving since a delayed flight will leave as soon as circumstances allow. It is advisable to be at the airport at the scheduled departure time in case the flight is able to leave before the actual estimated departure time."

My initial reading: "Be sure to show up on time so you don't miss your flight, because if it's leaving late it might leave early." I think there must have been a whole series of people on something good in order to account for both the creation and the use of the "technical" term "actual estimated departure time" =P

I was on a flight once that was supposed to have left at 12, but delayed until 1, then delayed until 2 but then later actually left at 1:30. Something like that. It meant sitting around at the airport longer than I intended, and also I had to buy food because I got hungry. Also bought an extra magazine because I ran out of reading material.
