Google Maps on jetBlue

I recently had the chance to see the Google Maps on jetBlue that I wrote about earlier.

The maps are pretty simple; no satellite views or other cool Google features. They rotate among zoom levels. (My photostream has other examples.) There’s also a promo encouraging you to use Google Maps on the ground.

There are more interesting inflight map experiences. Here’s a YouTube video of Airshow 4200 from Air New Zealand. Most of the airlines I’ve flown use Airshow software, but I haven’t seen this version.

I do have to be a little concerned when the company’s marketing brochure incorrectly identifies Venice.
