Most airlines offer flight updates on their web sites, but those sites aren't always easy to access on a mobile device, especially with the iffy signal found near many airport. A new service from Virgin Blue lets you check flight status by sending an email [email protected] with a query in the subject line.
As well as sending flight numbers to get details of current status, the service can also handle queries queries such as "Melbourne to Adelaide today". The service only covers flights happening today or tomorrow. If you're a regular Virgin Blue flyer, or just need to pick up an incoming Virgin passenger, it's a potentially useful address to add to your contacts.
