Flight Status Via SMS
With more airline tickets being purchased online, I wouldn't be surprised to see all the major carriers start to offer this. Indirectly this is a mobile marketing application.
From Brownsville Herald Airport adds text messaging service for customers
Brownsville-South Padre Island International Airport has become the first airport in Texas — and one of only three between Michigan and Alabama — to offer text-messaging notification of flight status changes.
Travelers and those interested in flight arrivals and departures enter pager, cell phone or Blackberry contact information on the airport Web site.
If flights are delayed or their status otherwise changes, an electronic message will go out to those on the list.
