How do you determine the effective time of Departure and Arrival? Is it the moment the pushback begins? The moment the aircraft gets airborne and touches ground?

Push-back and back at the gate is ok.

In my trip reports I consider pushback for departure and opening of the doors for arrival.

But I think that FR24 has different standards: take-off and landing.

In my reports I note the start of pushback and the take off time, if I can get the runway number (which most of the time I don't) I put that in as well. I note the landing time but not the doors opening for arrival, usually at the moment of doors being opened I have put away my pen and notebook and am preparing to get off the plane.

We are looking to place more trip reports onto the front page of the site (first it has to be posted in this forum). A real name for that trip report is required.

A five-star rating system has been set for the trip reports on the main page. Which categories would you use to rate an airline ? e.g. food, comfort, speeches, on-time, price ?

Thanks for the suggestions and opinions!

I think there is certainly one crucial element that should be used to rate an airline expercience is how friendly the crew was.
