JetBlue to use Google Maps for in-flight tracking

Service on airline's entertainment channel

Airline JetBlue has partnered with Google Maps to allow customers to map the routes of their flights in real time on the plane's seatback televisions.

Passengers can find the moving map feature, provided by JetBlue's LiveTV, on the airline's in-seat satellite television system. Customers can also refer others to the JetBlue website, where they can track flights live, including the flight's estimated departure and arrival times, using Google's technology online.

In addition, JetBlue says customers can also use the Google Maps feature to track Blue Betty, the airline's customised 1992 Airstream RV.
