The Google Flight Info Trick

When I first stumbled across this, I thought I was the only one who hadn’t heard about it. Now I find myself telling other travelers about it all the time and am consistently surprised that they don’t know it.

If you want to see the current departure and arrival time, terminal, and gate for any flight, just type the following into the Google search box:

flight info [airline] [flight-number]

Where [airline] is the name of the airline and [flight-number] is the number of the flight. Example:

google-flight-info-search-box-text

Here’s an example of what you get back:

google-flight-info-search-box

It works from any browser on any device and for every airline and flight number I’ve ever tried. Good job, Google.
