Bing adds flight status info, improvements to movies and sports results

For the month of January, the Bing team is improving the way your search for flight status information, movies, and sports. The enhancements to these search experiences make it easier for those times when you want to find information at a quick glance.

First and foremost, with Bing’s now enhanced flight tracking feature, you can look up flight status even without the flight number. All you need to do is search for a flight by city name and airport code, and Bing will show you a carousel list of flight status from various airlines. And, if you do know the fight number, Bing will show you narrow results and terminal and gate information.

The search engine can predict the results of popular events such as the Golden Globe awards, and the NFL Playoffs. With sports, Bing will show a carousel list of teams which are playing, and the chances of winning. There’s also a cool feature where the search engine can provide answer carousel lists for popular releases on Netflix and Amazon Prime.
