Using Google to track flight status

Remember I told you Google's powerful search tool can be used as a calculator (tip_79.php) or dictionary (tip_72.php). Or perhaps you're using it as a currency converter? (tip_251.php) Well, there is more ... you can also use it to track flight status.

Here's how:

  1. In Google's blank search box, simply type the flight number. (For example, BA8735.)
  2. Press [ENTER] or the Search button.

Glad I wasn't flying out yesterday morning ...
