Flight Status from live.com

Live.com has a cool feature that allows you to look up your flight status really easily.

If you know your flight just enter “flight status” along with your flight number into the search box, eg if I was meeting someone from British Airways flight BA10 I could enter as follows:


Other search engines (which shall remain nameless at the moment) do something similar but not with this much detail.

Pretty smart.

    The new feature on Microsoft’s latest concept "Bing" is even cooler. It gives much more detailed info, and has an awesome tool to help you decide when to purchase tickets.

    It’s pretty amazing what type of information you can get from the search engines.  With microformat, I think we’ll see a lot more cool stuff like this!
