Google adds flight status information to search results

People really love Google for searching keywords, but it can do so much more, such as converting currencies, finding phone numbers, or being a simple calculator. Now, the company has added a flight tracking service using data pulled from Flightstats.com

All you have do is type the airline and flight number into Google (say, AA 299) and the first result will tell you whether your flight is on time or delayed as well as the estimated departure and arrival times. Sure there are sites that already do this, such as Travelocity, Expedia, and FBOWeb, but it really is a neat, time-saver feature for Google users.
