Airline JetBlue has created mock-ups of how Google Glass could be used for air travel. A posting on Google+ shows a how the Glass interface could show a number of important details for passengers when they are in an airport, including information relating to flights, baggage, and airport car parking facilities.

The post, discovered by Business Insider, appears to be JetBlue's entry to a Google competition that asked potential users how they would use the wearable computer, with winners being invited to an experience event and the option to buy a pair of the eyewear. Though the entry apparently follows the rules of the now-closed contest, it is not clear if it would count, as it was open to US residents aged 18 or over, and not corporations. JetBlue's entry has the Glass display showing the capacity of car parks at an airport, the information for a flight, the location of in-use and free power outlets, the time and location of the correct baggage claim carousel after a flight, and an estimate for taxi fare from the airport to a location. None of the images relate to in-flight uses, though this would likely be down to possible issues with current FAA rules for electronics.
