So I was booking some flights today and I remembered that I already had a TripIt account set up. Here’s how it went:

  1. I booked the flights.

That’s the only step that I did.

  1. TripIt imported the correct flight data from the confirmations in my Gmail inbox.
  2. The flights were added to a TripIt calendar I have in iCal and my iPhone.
  3. TripIt even posted a little note on my Facebook wall that I’ll be going somewhere.

I’ll pass on the flying cars for now, this is good enough.
