As well you can also track the flight real time by clicking on the Track this flight in real time link but at this point in time this will only work for flights originating in the United States, Canada and Europe. This option comes via FlightStats.com.
The data used to display this information is provided by Farecast which Microsoft acquired and integrated into Live Search last year.
much thanks to the crew at Liveside for the info and graphic
