Airlines and Bug Responsiveness

While developing FlightStats, I ran accross several bugs in the data I got from the Bureau of Transportation Systems. I reported the data to them, and got a quick response back (two weeks) that they had confirmed the bugs and asked the airlines to correct their reporting.

Did they? Yes! (Well, mostly. Grr, Southwest.)
