    Siri seems to have no info regarding planes flying above you anymore. I take its because "Wolfram planes above" doesn't work either.

    This feature not working for anyone else?

    I've never heard of this feature until your post. What was supposed to happen?

    Siri would show you what planes are above you. It would include info like direction, altitude and angle up from your current location.

    Interesting. Never knew Siri could show that info.

    If it helps, there are apps for that. Flight Radar being one. I have used that one.

    Oh man. I just checked it out, and it's not working for me either. Meh. I used that frequently.

    Can anybody on 8.0.2 and 7 try this and see if it works? Does not work for me on 8.1 beta. Hoping it's just a beta bug.

    "Wolfram planes above" didn't work for me. But "what planes are above me" did. Also "...above me now" (though it heard it as "know", still got it).

    Wow such useful information, thanks! :)

    Now I can run outside, point to the sky, and call out the flight number.
