    I came across this free app. No idea how well it works but for now its free.

    Know when to leave for the airport

    Just Landed began when one of us got a call: "I'm waiting in the terminal. Where are you?" If this has ever happened to you, then you know how embarrassing it is and how it made you feel like a jerk for leaving your friend or loved one stranded at the airport. Alternatively, perhaps you've had the joy of pacing the arrival area for hours because you didn't realize the flight was delayed. What is needed is a self-updating alarm to leave for the airport at just the right time.

    After trying a dozen flight tracking apps, we realized that nobody was solving this problem. As it turns out, there wasn't an app for that. So we built one – Just Landed ‐ with the goal of giving you supernaturally good airport pickup timing.
    In addition to tracking incoming flights in real-time, Just Landed also tracks your location and monitors current traffic conditions – even when the app isn't open. It intelligently figures out when to notify you to leave for the airport so that you'll arrive just in time to park and meet someone. You'll never be late (or early) to pick someone up at the airport again!

    Yeah it's a great app, but sadly only for iOS right now.

    They basically merge flight info data with traffic information between your location and the airport. That gives you ALL the information you need right there, then it's just a matter of presenting it in a pretty way and setting up the notifications.

    An incoming flight into SFO that's on time means you have to be at SFO at a specific time... if it takes you 20 minutes to get there but traffic is heavy, then the app knows to compensate and let you know that you should leave early.
