Random information on the term “ETA”:

The estimated time of arrival or ETA is the time when a ship, vehicle, aircraft, cargo or emergency service is expected to arrive at a certain place. One of the more common uses is in public transportation where the movements of trains, buses, airplanes and the like can be used to generate estimated times of arrival depending on either a static timetable or through measurements on traffic intensity.[citation needed] In this respect, the phrase or its abbreviation is often paired with its complement, “estimated time of departure” or “ETD”, to indicate the expected start time of a particular journey.[citation needed] This information is often conveyed to a passenger information system as part of the core functionality of intelligent transportation systems.

For example, a certain flight may have a calculated ETA based on the speed by which it has covered the distance traveled so far. The remaining distance is divided by the speed previously measured to roughly estimate the arrival time.[citation needed] This particular method does not take into account any unexpected events (such as new wind directions) which may occur on the way to the flight’s destination.[citation needed]
