Alright, so Google is NOT a favorite search engine of mine, but it does have a couple of time-saving tools.
Did you know you can check your flight status without visiting the airline’s web site? Just type the airline name and flight number into the Google search box. It automatically displays arrival/departure times, terminal and gate number.
The same thing works for tracking packages. I used this when I couldn’t remember which shipper had sent the package I was expecting. Instead of finding and going to the shipper’s site, just type your tracking number into your Google search. You don’t need to specify whether it’s UPS, FedEx, or USPS.
