Pretty soon you’re never going to have to do anything outside of Google. You’ll check your email, calendar, dry cleaning, and now, flight status, all from the comfort of your precious Google Account.
Just in time for the thorny holiday travel season, Google has implemented flight tracking directly into its search engine. So not only can you check the weather, stocks, and get directions from the Google command prompt, but save yourself a few minutes by skipping the airline’s clunky homepage to find out how late your flight is. They’re all late nowadays, right?
The data is being pulled from FlightStats.com, and clicking on your flight (American Airlines 125, for instance) gives you detailed information, including the ability to track its current location over, wait for it, Google Maps.
